Webster University is committed to providing a healthy environment for all of its students, employees and campus visitors. While we respect the rights of those who use tobacco and other nicotine products, it has been determined that tobacco use is detrimental to the health of users and of others nearby.

Therefore, all campus buildings are designated smoke-free and tobacco-free. This includes cigarettes, pipes, cigars, e-cigarettes, chewing tobacco and other products that may include tobacco. This applies to private offices as well as common areas.

Smoking and tobacco use is permitted outside and 30 feet away from entrances to University buildings. Public Safety Officers and others within the University community are charged with reminding smokers and users of other tobacco products to avoid smoking or using tobacco products inside University buildings or within 30 feet of building entrances.

For this and other policies and procedures at the home campus in St. Louis, please visit the Student Handbook website.

    Why doesn’t Webster go completely smoke free like every other college in Missouri and Illinois? It’s disgusting to have to walk through a cloud of smoke on the way inside or to open a window and have smoke waft in.
