Tobacco, Smoke and Nicotine-Free
Putting the health, safety and comfort of our community first.

UNH is committed to supporting its campus communities in Durham, Manchester, Concord and around the state in becoming tobacco, smoke and nicotine-free. Our policy aims to create a community culture where well-being is a priority, and where a healthy lifestyle without tobacco, smoke and nicotine is the norm.

While tobacco, smoke and nicotine products are prohibited in UNH facilities and on its grounds, the focus of our policy is to promote voluntary compliance, support and resources that encourage a healthy community and sustainable environment. The updated policy was developed by a UNH-wide coalition in 2021 and went into effect on January 1, 2022. Moving forward, a TSN-Free Implementation Task Force will work to strengthen understanding of the policy and provide resources to the community.

UNH joins nearly 2,500 U.S. campuses that have adopted a 100% smoke-free policy. This policy applies to everyone on UNH properties: students, faculty, staff, visitors, contractors and vendors.
