Smoking Information


You cannot smoke anywhere on campus.

As of Jan. 1, smoking and vaping is prohibited under Oregon law for people under 21.

Each place and state has each law, so pay attention when you travel. If you see someone smoking where they are not supposed to smoke, it is ok to ask them to move.



Dear students,

As we start a new calendar year and semester at Willamette, we want to inform you of a recent change to one of Oregon’s laws that may affect you.

With the passage of House Bill 2024, which was signed into law by the governor in August 2017, Oregon has become the fifth state in the country to raise the age for possession and use of tobacco and inhalant delivery systems (vaping) to 21 years of age. This change took effect Jan. 1, 2018.

Since 2016, Willamette University has been a smoke-free campus (meaning you cannot smoke inside or outside of buildings at any location on the WU campus), we want you to be informed about the law off campus as well. This law also prohibits possession of tobacco and inhalant delivery systems by those who are under the age of 21.

It is our responsibility to recognize state laws as reflected in Code of Student Conduct, which you can find online at the link below.

For specific information about the new law, see the link below.
Best wishes for a great semester,
