Campus Carry Campus Carry is here. Senate Bill 11, also referred to as Campus Carry, allows licensed individuals to carry concealed handguns in certain areas on academic campuses. Within this bill, provisions allow universities to have some discretion in tailoring Campus Carry policy to fit the uniqueness of individual campus environments. House Bill 910, also referred to as Open Carry, legalized the open carry of handguns in Texas for individuals who have a concealed handgun license. The Open Carry legislation has some exceptions such as institutions of higher education. To carry on campus: Must have a LTC (license to carry) or a CHL (concealed handgun license). Weapon must be concealed at all times. Follow Penal Code 30.06 (exclusionary zones) For a list of exclusions see http://www.depts.ttu.edu/hr/documents/CampusCarryExclusionaryZones.pdf If you have a question about Texas Tech University’s Campus Carry compliance initiative, email your question to campuscarry@ttu.edu.
