$25 Fine for On Campus Tobacco Use

Parking officer issuing ticket to tobacco-free policy violator

As of Fall 2015, violators of the EKU Tobacco-Free Policy face an on-the-spot $25 fine issued by Parking & Transportation officers. The fine was instituted by President Benson to help increase compliance with the policy which was implemented in June, 2014. The policy covers use of tobacco in any form, including cigarettes, cigars, pipes, hookahs, smokeless tobacco as well as vaping. EKU Kick Butt Ambassadors regularly patrol the campus grounds and buildings, reminding violators and advising visitors of the policy and fine.
