The Saint Mary’s University campus (indoors and out) is completely tobacco-free. The policy prohibits the use of all tobacco products: traditional cigarettes, e-cigarettes, chew, pipes, cigars, hookah or water pipe smoking, snus, snuff, etc.
Please note that e-cigarettes are included in the policy. For more information see:

Tobacco Policy Working Committee
A campus-wide committee includes representation from administration, staff and students, and connects to outside agencies such as Smoke-Free Nova Scotia, the Lung Association of Nova Scotia, and Capital Health.
The Tobacco Policy Working Committee evaluates reports of repeat offenders, neighborhood concerns, and overall policy issues and recommends actions for resolution.
Opportunities for Students to Take Action
Join Tobacco-Free Take Action! Working with the Student Health and Wellness committee and SMUSA, we are committed to improving awareness and education through organizing new tobacco-free initiatives throughout the academic year.
Getting involved in Tobacco-Free Take Action! is a great way to serve the Saint Mary’s community. You can also suggest that your group, society, or class project get involved with their own initiative, or joins ours!
