This study assessed prevalence of student smoking and quitting behaviors and associated demographic, contextual and attitudinal factors.

Intentions to quit smoking and quit attempts were high among all smokers although use of on-site cessation supports was less than the optimal. These combined factors indicate a need for better targeting of our prevention strategies and the need to promote greater awareness of cessation supports for successful implementation of a smoke-free campus.
