|Texas Handgun Carry Laws & TTU|
Texas Tech University adopted a policy statement regarding the carrying of concealed handguns on campus.
The new operating policy goes into effect Aug. 1. Open carry of firearms, per state law, will continue to be prohibited on campus.
input from constituent groups across campus, including faculty, staff and students, and I appreciate their involvement.
The university will require students who possess a concealed handgun license and reside in designated campus residential facilities to safely secure and store the handgun so “it is not readily available to anyone except the permit holder.” Other students assigned to a residence hall room where a firearm is stored will be allowed to request a transfer.
Open carry of firearms, per state law, will continue to be prohibited on campus.
Areas excluded included:
The Robert H. Ewalt Student Recreation Center, Kent R. Hance Chapel, any location where professional counseling services are provided, spaces used for activities or camps attended by minors, designated research laboratories, any university event where alcohol is being served in accordance with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission and approved performance venues.
