Question / Issue

How will I know if an area has been designated as an exclusion zone?

Answer / Solution

The University’s campus carry policy can be found with the specific exclusion zones.  S.B. 11 requires that the University give notice to license holders for each building or area restricting the concealed carry of a weapon.  Notice is defined under Texas Penal Code Section 30.06 to include a signed posted on University property that contains the below language in Spanish and English or written communication such as “a card or other document on which is written language identical to the following: ‘Pursuant to Section 30.06, Penal Code (trespass by license holder with a concealed handgun), a person licensed under Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code (handgun licensing law), may not enter this property with a concealed handgun.”

The University will use multiple methods of notice to ensure the University community is aware of the exclusion zones including, but not limited to, posting a sign near buildings where the entire building is excluded, providing cards to individuals, and placing notices on doors or other areas inside or outside buildings, in the student handbook, student life materials, ticketed events, flyers for events, e-mail communications to the University community, as well as via training provided to University faculty, staff, and students.
