Welcome

Yale cares deeply about the health and well-being of its students, faculty, staff and visitors. That is why the university is working towards becoming a tobacco free campus. Leading the charge among its Ivy peers, the focus of Tobacco Free Yale is on improving the health and environment of our overall community.

The goals of the Tobacco Free Yale initiative are to:

  • create a healthier university community,
  • foster a campus culture in which tobacco users are supported in their quit attempts and
  • become a model for developing a tobacco free campus.

We recognize that quitting tobacco can be a significant personal challenge and that cessation programs are an integral component in implementing a tobacco free campus.  Yale has numerous resources to help. Visit How to Quit to find out about these resources and available support.
