From today (01 August) campus will be smoke-free in an aim to help people to live a healthier lifestyle and cut out harmful habits.
Your Union is supporting the University in promising to create a smoke free campus as part of a city-wide ambition to create a smoke free generation by 2025.
Lauren Huxley, your Union Affairs Officer said: “I’m really pleased and proud to say that LUU will be supporting the move to a smoke free campus. Not only will it provide a cleaner and healthier atmosphere, it will also encourage people to seek healthier lifestyles for themselves. I’m hoping it will bring about positive change to our members’ lives. If you’re a student who’d like to reduce or stop smoking, LUU Advice are here to help you.”
Between 8am-6pm everyday people are asked not to smoke anywhere on campus. This includes main campus, western campus, Fairbairn House, all University-owned sports fields and all University-owned accommodation. Vaping will still be able allowed at this time, although, as usual, you will not be able to vape inside University buildings or their entrances.
