Students may NOT bring into the Residence Halls or University Apartments, for any reason, any firearm (except as permitted by law; see below for details), illegal knife, club, or any other weapon (not restricted to legal definitions) that may be hazardous to the health or safety of residents. This includes, but is not limited to: rifles (including drill rifles), pistols, shotguns, pellet guns, BB guns, taser/stun guns, bows and arrows, sling shots, martial arts weapons such as nun chucks or throwing stars, axes, machetes, swords, spears, switchblades, or knives with a blade 4-inches or longer. Residence Life staff or University Police may confiscate these items.
In addition, the following items are prohibited from being used inside of any Residence Hall or University Apartment or public area: airsoft guns, paintball guns and Nerf guns. These items may be stored in a room/apartment or storage closet, but may not be used anywhere on the University Apartments grounds or in buildings.
Concealed handgun license holders must follow all state and federal laws concerning owning and possessing a handgun on campus. Any resident who is licensed to carry a concealed handgun and chooses to bring the handgun into their room/apartment must store his or her handgun and ammunition in an electronic locking steel safe that has been rented or purchased from the Department of Residence Life. For information regarding safe rentals and/or purchases, please see Amenities > Personal Safes page.
