University of Limerick aims to create a healthier, smoke free and vape free environment for its employees, students, contractors and visitors. As a result, smoking and vaping will be prohibited on all University campuses from 1st June, 2018.
Vaping includes the use of electronic cigarettes, electronic cigars, electronic pipes or other such electronic delivery systems intended to simulate smoking, whether they deliver a nicotine dose or not.
The Student Health Centre within UL will provide supports to students who wish to cease smoking/vaping and refer as appropriate to the relevant HSE primary care smoking cessation provider. The HR department will direct UL staff who wish to cease smoking/vaping to the appropriate primary health care HSE smoking cessation programmes .
