Campus Carry FAQ

Effective August 1, 2016, concealed carry of a handgun by license holders is allowed on Texas public university campuses subject to restrictions imposed by statutes and by the University President. Concealed carry is prohibited in some buildings on Texas State University campuses.

This FAQ is designed to help educate and spread awareness about the implementation of the Campus Carry law and the President’s rules regarding the carrying of concealed handguns by license holders on Texas State University campuses. The President’s rules, which have been approved by the Board of Regents of The Texas State University System, are set forth in PPPS 10.01 and Supplement to PPPS 10.01, and can be viewed at

Also, a University Policy and Procedure Statement (UPPS) is in place that addresses the concealed carry of handguns on university premises. Please see UPPS 01.04.45.
