Breathe Fresh at UNF

In order to create a healthier campus environment for all of our students, faculty, staff and visitors, the University of North Florida has become a designated smoke-free campus.


Becoming a designated smoke-free campus means that the act of smoking is prohibited on all University controlled properties. That includes recreational facilities, residential building and parking lots and garages. For more information, see UNF's full list of policies and regulations.


How do I Quit?

There are a variety of resources to support those wishing to kick their smoking habit. In addition to numerous outreach activities each term, the Department of Recreation and Wellness offers "Quit Smoking Now" and "Tools to Quit" classes. The classes provide participants with support, guidance and resources to help them stop smoking. Classes are offered at a variety of times in order to meet the diverse needs of students and staff. If you are interested in improving your health by kicking the habit, contact us at (904) 620-5769.
