University’s Smoke Free Policy Now Enforced

As of Jan. 1, 2013, the University of Mississippi began strictly enforcing a new smoke free campus policy. Warnings will not be issued to those found smoking on campus; all violators, including faculty, staff, students, visitors and contractors, are instead subject to a $25 per violation fine.

Smoking is prohibited at all times and at all locations of the University of Mississippi Oxford campus, including university-owned facilities, properties and grounds.
