Nicholls State University is a TOBACCO FREE CAMPUS. The use of any tobacco product in any form (smoking or chewing) is prohibited (January 1, 2011).

  • Nicholls State University is proud to have been the first tobacco-free university in Louisiana. Recently, Nicholls updated its Tobacco Use policy to include restrictions on electronic cigarettes and smokeless tobacco. Faculty, staff and students can help keep the campus tobacco-free by reminding our classmates, colleagues and campus visitors that the use of any tobacco product in any form is prohibited.
  • Restricted products now include cigarettes, cigars, e-cigarettes, pipes, water pipes, all smokeless tobacco (chew, snuff, etc.) and all non-FDA approved nicotine products. The policy applies to all Nicholls students, faculty, staff, contractors and visitors.
  • Thanks for your help in keeping Nicholls a healthy campus.
