Weapons Policy

Under current Texas law, it is a felony to possess or carry a firearm of any kind, an illegal knife, or any other prohibited weapon on university property, regardless of whether or not the person has been issued a Texas Concealed Handgun License (CHL).  Anyone other than duly licensed peace officers found on university property in possession of a firearm or other prohibited weapon may be subject to arrest under current Texas law.  If the person in violation is a student, he or she may also be subject to the university student conduct policy and may be suspended or dismissed.

City ordinance prohibits the firing of any air gun, including pellet guns and BB guns.  Other dangerous weapons not listed here may be subject to sanction.  Students are not allowed to possess or fire any air gun on university property, including parking lots, or at any university activity off campus.
