 Texas State University-San Marcos will become tobacco-free on both its San Marcos and Round Rock campuses effective Monday, Aug. 1

 The use of any tobacco products will be prohibited on all university properties and in vehicles owned or leased by the university.

 Texas State became smoke-free inside all university buildings and vehicles in 2000, and several outside smoke-free zones were estaablished in 2005. The Round Rock campus opened in 2005 as a tobacco-free campus, and the university is now extending that policy to the San Marcos campus.
