Smoke-Free Campus Policy:
USMH provides students, faculty, employees and visitors with a healthy, smoke-free campus as of July 1st, 2013. All University System of Maryland (USM) colleges and universities now prohibit smoking on campus. The smoke-free policy was approved in June 2012 by the USM Board of Regents to reduce the health risks associated with first- and second-hand smoke.
Smoking is not permitted in or around campus buildings, including leased properties, on campus walkways or in University Plaza. Signs are posted to remind guests and visitors that the policy applies to them as well as students and USMH employees and contractors. Cigarettes, cigars, smokeless tobacco, pipes and hookahs all are included in the ban.
