House Bill 910, also referred to as Open Carry, legalized the open carry of handguns in Texas for individuals who have a concealed handgun license. The Open Carry legislation has some exceptions such as institutions of Higher Education.
Senate Bill 11, also referred to as Campus Carry, allows licensed individuals to carry concealed handguns on academic campuses. Within this Bill, provisions allow universities to have some discretion in tailoring Campus Carry policy to fit the uniqueness of individual campus environments.
The purpose of this webpage is to keep you informed with up-to-date information about Senate Bill 11 and the university's efforts to achieve compliance.
