Campus Maps and Restrictions

With limited exceptions, the W.Va. Campus Self-Defense Act requires West Virginia University to allow concealed pistols or revolvers to be carried on campuses throughout the WVU System by people with current and valid concealed carry licenses. Under WVU BOG Rule 5.14, “WVU Campus” means all areas, including buildings, that are under custodial possession of the WVU Board of Governors and within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area and used in direct support of, or in a manner related to, the University’s educational purposes. It does not include areas rented, leased or under full-time occupancy and use by a private entity.

The University has developed campus maps showing prohibited areas, in general. These maps, in conjunction with signage, will assist in informing where licensed concealed pistols and revolvers are not allowed.

Ultimately, though, it is up to the concealed carry license holder to know the specifics of the law and BOG Rule 5.14 and to follow the regulations while on campuses throughout the WVU System.
