    This study examined university students’ smoking habits, recognition of risks associated with smoking/passive smoking, and attitudes toward smoking bans on university campuses. On comparing the rate of recognizing an increased risk of each disease caused by smoking/passive smoking in the non-smoking group, the rate was higher among students <agreeing> with smoking bans on university campuses compared with those <slightly agreeing> and <disagreeing> with them, but such a relationship was not observed in other groups. The rate of answering <The separation of smoking and non-smoking areas is enough> was higher among students other than those <agreeing> with smoking bans on university campuses in all groups. On the other hand, the rate of recognizing risks associated with passive smoking was generally lower than that for risks associated with smoking. In order to ban smoking on university campuses, it may be necessary to carefully and repeatedly explain that the separation of smoking and non-smoking areas is not enough to remove risks associated with passive smoking.
