Want to light up at the University of Michigan? There will be few safe havens beginning July 1, when the university's campuses go completely smoke-free.
President Mary Sue Coleman has approved the final report for implementing the new policy at the university's Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Flint campuses, officials announced Monday, making it Michigan's first public university to impose a total smoking ban.
Previously, smoking was prohibited at the three campuses in buildings and dorms. But smokers could step outside for a few puffs.
The new policy will no longer allow smoking on university grounds, including parking structures and surface lots.
The only places where it will be legal to light up are private vehicles and streets and sidewalks along roadways, even if they are part of the campus.
