Loyola University New Orleans will officially become a smoke-free campus starting Friday, August 1, 2015, banning the use of all tobacco products on property owned, leased or operated by Loyola.

This comes after New Orleans became a smoke-free city this past April, which included public spaces, bars, restaurants, hotels and other places.

Loyola’s ban of tobacco products, including e-cigarettes and chewing tobacco, and part of the “Let’s Share Clean Air” campaign, will be effective in campus buildings, grounds, exterior open spaces, parking lots, on-campus sidewalks, streets, driveways, athletic facilities, practice facilities, recreational spaces and in all university-owned or operated vehicles.

    Louisiana Act 581, effective June 9, 2014, bans smoking within 200 feet of all public and private K-12 schools.

    The implication for Loyola smokers is that they cannot smoke within 200 feet of Holy Name Of Jesus school.

    200 feet covers the followng:
    Calhoun Street: From just shy of Freret Street to just shy of Loyola Avenue
    LaSalle Street: The whole block between HNJ School and Mercy Hall PLUS half the block between Calhoun and Palmer streets.
    Cromwell Street: The whole block between HNJ School and Monroe Library PLUS half the block between Calhoun and Palmer streets.

    The New Orleans Police Department will issue $25/$50/$100 fines for 1st/2nd/3rd(+) time offenders. Court costs are not mentioned in Act 581, but you can count on them being added by any municipality enforcing the law.
