JCU Townsville is a Smoke-free Campus. This means that smoking is prohibited on all JCU premises, including all buildings, grounds, carparks and vehicles.

If you wish to smoke, you will need to go off-campus, beyond the campus boundaries.

Smoking is defined as the inhalation and exhalation of the smoke of burning tobacco, herbs or drugs. Under the Tobacco and Other Smoking Products Act 1998 (Tobacco Act), electronic cigarettes are defined as smoking products. Electronic cigarettes include e-cigarettes, e-cigars, vapour pens, and personal vapourisers or other similar devices. JCU Smoke-free Policy therefore also includes the use of electronic cigarettes.
