Fairfield University to Become a Tobacco Free Environment



On March 1st, students at Fairfield University received a letter via email from interim President, Lynn Babington, regarding a significant change that will be made on campus.

“In January of 2018, Fairfield University will become a tobacco free campus,” according to the letter from Babington. Over the next 9 months changes will be made on campus to help move this process along more smoothly.

The first change will take place on March 20, 2017. At that time, the use of tobacco and tobacco products which include electronic cigarettes, chewing tobacco, and cigars can only occur in limited areas across campus which will be labeled with signage.

Fairfield University believes in Cura Personalis, which is care for the whole person. The Jesuit Values play an important role in our education here at Fairfield. Fairfield University is committed to building healthy lifestyles for students.
