Australia’s largest uni goes smoke free

Melbourne [AAP]

Smoking has been banned on all campuses of a major Victorian university.

Monash University announced that smoking, including the use of e-cigarettes, would be banned from every campus, including grounds and vehicles from January 2016.

The university said it was part of a broader commitment by all Victorian universities to provide healthier smoke-free environments.

‘There is clear evidence to show that smoke-free environments increase the rate of quitting and reduce the amount of people taking up smoking,’ the university said in a statement.

Students, staff and visitors will need to leave the campus to light up and those caught smoking on university grounds may face ‘disciplinary action’.
