Smoking Policy

Any person under 21 years of age is underage in the State of Indiana and may not lawfully purchase, accept, or possess tobacco products in Indiana.

In accordance with Indiana state law (Ind. Code 7.1-5-12), Chapter 96 of the St. Joseph County Code of Ordinances and LEED certification requirements, and based on FDA testing, the University of Notre Dame (“University”) prohibits all smoking in or within 25 feet of all buildings and stadiums, as well as in all vehicles owned, leased or operated by the University. This includes the smoking of tobacco in any form (cigarettes, cigars, pipes, cigarillos, etc.), and the use of electronic devices that emit smoke, such as e-cigarettes or any other product intended to mimic smoking of any product such as hookahs or similar devices.

In addition to the smoking products described above, the use of oral tobacco (including spit and spitless, smokeless, chew and snuff) and nasal tobacco (such as snuff) is prohibited in all University buildings.
