Study highlights need for reduced availability of indoor tanning on college campuses

October 29, 2014

Addressing the availability of indoor tanning facilities on and near college campuses is a crucial target for public health, according to researchers.

Using a sample of the top 125 colleges and universities listed in the U.S. News & World Report, the researchers contacted the colleges and nearby housing to determine availability of indoor tanning services. They assessed the frequency of indoor tanning both on-campus and within off-campus housing facilities and the payment options available for tanning.
