On July 10, 2018 Leeward Community College joined all University of Hawaiʻi campuses and facilities and became tobacco-free, joining more than 2,000 U.S. universities and colleges in an effort to provide a healthy environment for all students, faculty and staff.
Hawaiʻi state law now prohibits the use of tobacco products on all 10 UH campuses and university-owned facilities.
We encourage everyone to refrain from using tobacco products while on property owned or operated by UH. Tobacco products include, but are not limited to, cigarettes, cigars, pipes, smoking tobacco, electronic cigarettes, vapes and chewing tobacco.
Those intending to use tobacco products must leave the Leeward campus, facility or grounds to do so. Previously designated “smoking areas,” (including parking lots) are now also no-smoking areas.
