at UC Merced

A smoke/tobacco-free policy will force students, faculty and staff to leave campus to smoke. What about the personal safety of these individuals, especially in the early morning or evening when it is dark?

UC encourages all individuals to be mindful of their personal safety while on or off campus. Medications such as the nicotine patch, gum, lozenge, nasal spray or inhaler are options that can be considered to meet nicotine needs without leaving campus.
