  • Any portion of campus leased by the university to a third party if that party wants to prohibit concealed handguns from the premises (given effective notice)
  • Assigned offices where the president has approved the prohibition of concealed handguns if the employee has demonstrated that the carrying of a concealed handgun by an LTC holder presents a “significant risk of negligent discharge”

Rules About Handguns in Dorm Rooms

Students living on campus who are LTC holders and wish to store a handgun in their assigned room must provide their own safe, and it must be one that was designed and manufactured specifically for the purpose of safe handgun storage.

  • These individuals may not provide access to their safe to anyone else.
  • Other rules about the storing of handguns in dorm rooms will be found in the 2016-2017 revisions of the Residential Living and Learning Guidebook and Student Handbook once they become available.
