TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - A no-smoking policy at the University of Alabama is expected to go into effect at the start of the new year.

School officials said in a statement Tuesday that the smoking ban will apply to the use of traditional and electronic cigarettes in all facilities, grounds and parking areas on campus.

University officials say the policy is meant to protect the university community from the dangers associated with smoking.

The university is offering smoking cessation help through the student health center, the office of health promotion and wellness and the college of community health sciences.

School officials say faculty and staff covered by the university’s insurance plan will also be provided benefits for smoking cessation help, which will include waivers for some services.
