Campus Carry

On July 1, Senate Bill 10, the Campus Self Defense Act, will take effect in West Virginia. Passed by the West Virginia Legislature in 2023, the Campus Self Defense Act allows a person to carry a concealed pistol or revolver on the grounds of an institution of higher education, with some exceptions, if that person has a current and valid license to carry a concealed deadly weapon.
