PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- It's getting even harder for smokers on Oregon college campuses to find a place to light up.

The Oregonian reports the University of Oregon, Western Oregon University and Southern Oregon University plan to ban all tobacco, including chewing, on campus in the fall of 2012. Oregon State University will ban smoking.

The state's other three public universities will still allow smoking outside in restricted areas.

Tobacco already is banned at Oregon Health & Science University and many private colleges.
