In December, the Kansas Board of Regents approved PSU’s weapons policy, which was written to comply with state law that allows concealed handguns on campuses beginning on July 1, 2017. PSU’s policy is very similar to that of the other regents’ institutions.

On July 1, as required by state law, anyone 21 years of age or older and lawfully eligible, will be allowed to carry a concealed handgun on campus in buildings without security, such as metal detectors.

PSU’s policy was developed with the cooperation of a weapons task force comprised of faculty, student, and staff representatives. The task force gathered input from campus over several months.
