In the 2015 session, the Texas Legislature passed and Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law legislation commonly known as “campus carry.” It allows those with concealed handgun licenses to carry their guns on the campuses of public universities in Texas, beginning Aug. 1, 2016.

UNT Dallas is preparing to implement and comply with this new law, which allows for each university to develop policies that take into account the specific safety considerations of its campus. View a copy of the UNT Dallas policy.
