Welcome to Boise State University Smoke-Free Campus website.
For the health of our community, Boise State University is smoke-free. The smoke-free policy covers all university-owned or controlled buildings, property, vehicles and parking lots, the Friendship Bridge and Greenbelt section adjacent to campus.
As of January 2, 2012, a new law prohibiting smoking in public places is in effect. This includes Boise City parks, workplaces, and the Greenbelt. According to the new city-wide ban, no smoking is permitted within 20 feet of the Greenbelt. However, as per the Boise State Smoke-Free Campus Policy, any campus-owned property will remain smoke-free, including the campus-owned Greenbelt. Portions of the Greenbelt that are university-owned include all areas from Broadway Avenue to Capitol Boulevard and the Friendship Bridge. Thank you for your cooperation.
