What is Campus Carry?
Texas Senate Bill 11 (SB 11) was signed into law by Texas Governor Greg Abbott in
June, 2015, and is often referred to as “Campus Carry.” It permits individuals with
a concealed handgun license (CHL) to carry a concealed weapon on public university
campuses in Texas beginning August 1, 2016.
The law requires university presidents to develop policies and guidelines for their institutions. They may consult with students, staff and faculty and may consider the nature of the student population, specific safety concerns, and the uniqueness of the campus environment.
Campus Carry Working Group and TTUHSC
In April 2016, the Texas Tech University System Board of Regents reviewed the TTUHSC
campus carry policy as part of efforts to implement the provisions of Senate Bill
11. The TTUHSC campus carry policy was developed with input from various stakeholders
and through the efforts of the TTUHSC Campus Carry Working Group, which sought to
balance the needs of our widely distributed campuses and diverse campus body.
This page is meant to provide the most up-to-date news and information regarding campus carry at TTUHSC. As a university, TTUHSC will continue to strive for an environment of collective safety as we undertake our mission of education, service and research. The adoption of this new policy should not hinder this goal.
