Our commitment as a smokefree campus and guidance for students wanting to quit.

Large parts of the University are smokefree as part of our commitment to providing a healthy and safe environment for all staff and students.

Smokefree campus

Smoking is already prohibited in all UWE Bristol buildings. Our Smokefree policy now prohibits smoking within ten metres of all university buildings, so creating a smokefree space.

Operations and Security staff will be patrolling to make sure that smokers are aware of where they can and cannot smoke.

Where can I smoke?
