Monash to be smoke free by 2016

Monash has joined an initiative taken by all Victorian universities to provide a healthier environment on campuses throughout the state.

The University announced this week that it will go smoke-free across all campuses in Victoria to benefit the health and wellbeing of staff, students, and visitors.

While smokers are currently banned from smoking indoors, inside vehicles and within 10 metres of doorways, they are free to do so on all open spaces. The Smoke Free Monash initiative will see smoking restricted on campus to within designated smoking points.

The first stage will commence at the beginning of the second semester in July 2014 with restriction of smoking to special smoking points. The second and final phase of the smoke free initiative will be implemented following a consultation process with stakeholders, with the removal of smoking points in 2016.
