Smoke-free Massey Smokefree logo

Providing a healthy and safe environment for everyone at Massey University is important. We're committed to:

  • promoting “Smokefree/Auahi kore” as the norm by encouraging staff, students, contractors, volunteers, visitors and their families/whanau to quit smoking
  • eliminate secondhand smoke exposure to non-smokers
  • promote and support the cessation of smoking due to the inherent health risks to smokers
  • support New Zealand’s commitment to being essentially Smoke Free by 2025

Effective 1 January 2018, Massey University is Smokefree. This includes all:
