It is 24 months since UOW became a cleaner & healthier campus by committing to be smoke-free. We are all very fortunate to study & work in such a beautiful environment; however, this is a polite note that litter has become an issue on Northfields Avenue.
Additional ashtrays have now been fitted and smokers are reminded to use the ashtrays provided or use a personal ashtray. Thanks again for your commitment to the ongoing success of our Smoke-Free University Policy.
The UOW smoke-free ambassador program aims to assist with the implementation of the University’s Smoke-Free University Policy. The objective of the policy is to model positive health choices, raise awareness about the harmful effects of smoking and importantly remove the exposure of second-hand smoke for our staff, students and visitors. Smoke-Free Ambassadors will play a crucial role in raising awareness about the policy requirements and further create a healthy and safe environment across our campuses.
By volunteering to be a Smoke-Free Ambassador you can help with the transition to a smoke-free university and be as involved as you wish to be.
Say goodbye to second-hand smoke
In July 2016, The University of Wollongong implemented a Smoke-Free University Policy to model positive health choices, raise awareness about the harmful effects of smoking, and remove the exposure of second-hand smoke for our staff, students and visitors.
