As part of our efforts to promote a smoke-free campus and healthier lifestyle, we are designating all outdoor plaza areas surrounding Volker Hall, Lister Hill Library, and the Peters Building (School of Optometry), lot 10 under the Volker Hall Education Tower, and lot 12 under the Peters Building, as smoke-free areas effective January 2nd, 2012.

Volker Hall at UABOutdoor stairwells from the plaza to ground level are also included as part of this new smoke-free zone. Our recent beautification of Volker Hall, Lister Hill Library, Peters Building, and LRC plazas provided an opportunity for us to further enhance our contiguous outdoor spaces by making them smoke-free. Please encourage everyone in your respective schools/units to honor these designations as we work together to provide a healthier environment for the entire UAB community.
