Dear Supplier:

Michigan State University’s Board of Trustees approved a tobacco-free ordinance in 2015, a move that will go into effect August 15, 2016, as part of an ongoing effort to ensure the MSU community enjoys a healthy campus.

The new ordinance applies to all property governed by the Board of Trustees and includes not only main campus but also all MSU sites across the state, nation, and globe. 

In addition to traditional tobacco products such as cigarettes and chewing tobacco, the ordinance also prohibits e-cigarettes and vaporizers. All FDA-approved nicotine replacement therapy products are permitted for cessation use. The ordinance applies to everyone on MSU property, including visitors. Be advised if you are in a car, you must not be using tobacco when you enter campus.

Thank you for your cooperation.


Best regards,


Roger Somerville
Assistant Director of Procurement
