Health Promotion - Helping create a healthier campus to enhance student success

Smoking Cessation

Since January 2014, SDSU has been a smoke-free campus. The policy helps the entire university community to breathe easier.

A smoke-free campus encourages tobacco users to quit or decrease use – and supports those who have already quit using tobacco.

Smoke-free campus policies also protect the health and safety of nonsmokers by eliminating secondhand smoke on campus.

  • Did you know? Exposure to secondhand smoke is the third leading cause of preventable death in this country, killing over 50,000 non-smokers each year.
