Exempt Locations

Some areas of the WVU campus are exempt from the W.Va. Campus Self-Defense Act. The below lists outline the specific rooms in affected campus buildings across WVU’s Morgantown, Beckley and Keyser campuses where licensed concealed pistols and revolvers are not permitted.

Please note that the W. Va. Self-defense Act does not apply in areas under the control of other entities, such as WVU Medicine, United Hospital Center or Charleston Area Medical Center. This includes locations near the WVU campuses at HSC Morgantown, HSC Charleston, HSC Martinsburg and the School of Nursing Bridgeport Campus. Individuals should be aware of any applicable policies of those entities before entering those spaces. For instance, at the School of Nursing Bridgeport Campus, individuals cannot currently access WVU’s campus without walking through space where guns are prohibited. Therefore, while it may not be an exempt space, no guns should be in the School of Nursing Bridgeport Campus.
