Smoking Bans on State-Supported Colleges

Question: Is there a law that prohibits smoking on campuses of state-supported colleges and universities?   Answer: Not yet. Beginning July 1, 2015, the Smoke Free Campus Act will go into effect, banning smoking in both indoor and outdoor spaces on campuses. Exceptions are made for smoking inside privately-owned vehicles traveling through campus and certain activities allowed under the Federal American Indian Religious Freedom Act. Each institution of higher learning must establish a community task force by December 31, 2014, to coordinate the implementation of the new law.   For more information about Illinois law, visit If you have a legal question, send it to
