ODESSA, TX (KWES) - The campus carry bill, signed in to law last June, allows licensed holders to carry a concealed handgun on university campuses statewide starting August 1.
The bill also allows public university's the ability to designate areas as gun free, or exclusion, zones.
UTPB released their list of those exclusion zones Friday. Those zones include:
- The STEM Academy
- Early College High School (ECHS) Classrooms & those dedicated to ECHS and others while in use by ECHS.
- The Counseling Center
- The Child Care Center
- Ticketed sporting events
- Research Labs containing volatile chemicals
- UTPB Student Housing - rooms that have shared bedrooms.
- Student Testing and Accommodations Center
