UW-Madison adopted a smoke-free policy effective since April 8, 1991. Based on input from the campus community and experience with the original policy, the smoke-free policy was reviewed and amended in 1995 and in 2008. All buildings and vehicles, regardless of location, which are owned or leased by the University of Wisconsin-Madison, are entirely smoke-free. Except as noted below, the smoke-free policy applies to all indoor air space including individual faculty and administrative offices.

Smoking is not permitted near exits and entrances of UW buildings, except at a reasonable distance (25 feet or more) or unless otherwise designated. All indoor air space of university-owned and leased athletic facilities, University Residence Halls, and University Hospital and Clinics are smoke-free. Memorial Union and Union South are smoke-free with the exception of designated hotel rooms.

The office of the Vice Chancellor for Administration, room 100 Bascom, 262-9943, has been designated as a clearinghouse for complaints and other smoking policy matters.
