Welcome/ induction text

Sample text for use in your induction/ welcome materials:

The University of Leeds is proud to take the first step to become a Smokefree campus, part of a city-wide ambition to create a Smokefree generation by 2025. We are asking people not to smoke outside on campus between 8am and 6pm every day as we aim to inspire people - and in particular current and future generations of young people – to choose not to smoke. Currently people can still vape on campus, as it’s recognised as an aid to stop smoking, but we’re working towards our campus being completely Smokefree by 2025. Smoking and vaping inside University buildings or by their entrances remains prohibited.

More information for staff is at Smokefree campus and University Smoking policy or for students at Student information'
