NORMAN, Oklahoma -

Students and staff at the University of Oklahoma now have to leave campus if they want to smoke.

The rule went into effect on Sunday and the ban does not include designated areas where smokers can light up. Smoking is also banned at all athletics venues.

The campus originally planned to have two areas set aside for smokers but Gov. Mary Fallin signed an executive order making the whole Norman campus smoke-free.

The Norman Transcript reports that disciplinary actions range from warning to ticketing and fines.

OU offers a variety of free cessation classes and tools available through the university, Norman Regional Hospital and other offices.
