The institution’s smoke-free policy:

Effective July 10, 2018: all University of Hawaiʻi campuses and facilities became tobacco-free, joining more than 2,000 U.S. universities and colleges in an effort to provide a healthy environment for all students, faculty and staff.

Hawaiʻi state law (SB 134, Act 160, SLH 2018) now prohibits the use of tobacco products on the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa campus, and all 10 UH campuses and university-owned facilities.
We encourage all persons, including students, faculty, staff, contractors, and visitors, to refrain from using tobacco products while on property owned or operated by the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa for a healthier environment. "Tobacco products" include, but are not limited to, cigarettes, cigars, pipes, smoking tobacco, electronic cigarettes, vapes and chewing tobacco.
