The University of Kentucky campus became completely tobacco-free on all campus grounds and parking areas on November 19, 2009, coinciding with the American Cancer Society's Great American Smokeout®, held annually on the third Thursday in November. The tobacco-free policy, which prohibits the use of all tobacco products on all grounds and parking areas (traditional cigarettes, e-cigarettes, chew, pipes, cigars, hookah or waterpipe smoking, snus, snuff, etc.), applies to all areas of the contiguous UK campus in Lexington, indoors and out.
As of April 2015, UK joins over 1,000 Tobacco-free Campuses in the U.S..
