ASU is among over 1,000 colleges and universities that are 100% tobacco-free, and among over 1,500 colleges and universities that are 100% smokefree.

As of Aug. 1, 2013, the use of tobacco is prohibited on university property, facilities, grounds, parking structures, university-owned vehicles and structures owned or leased by the university.
