Law Allowing Guns At Texas Colleges Begins Monday
The campus-carry law pushed by Gov. Greg Abbott and the Republican legislative majority will make Texas one of a handful of states that guarantee the right to carry concealed handguns on campus.
At U of H, concealed weapons are not allowed in all buildings. The school has what are called exclusion zones. The zones apply to all university housing except Calhoun Lofts.
Besides university housing at U of H, exclusion zones include research labs and sports venues. The campus has established a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week secure storage area at the campus police station for gun holders to leave guns when they enter an exclusion zone.
