On April 22, 2013, UCLA became completely tobacco-free, with the use of cigarettes and all tobacco products no longer permitted on the main campus or other UCLA properties, as required by a UC plan requiring all 10 campuses to go tobacco-free. Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the United States and UCLA is proud to join the hundreds of universities already making tobacco-free the new normal nationwide.
