FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State University is going tobacco free across campus.

The new policy takes effect on Thursday and prohibits tobacco use in all university buildings, at events and inside vehicles parked at the university.

The State-Journal reported that the Board of Regents adopted the policy during a meeting on Friday.

The university will not provide outdoor ashtrays or smoking shelters, but materials on quitting the habit will be available through the school's human resources office.

University police and security will enforce the tobacco-free policy.

The University of Kentucky, University of Louisville and Morehead State University also have barred tobacco use on campus.
