Weapons Prohibition Policy

Rice University also maintains a Weapons Prohibition Policy that prohibits all members of the Rice community (including faculty, staff, students, contractors, and visitors) from possessing firearms, explosives, other dangerous weapons, and replicas of dangerous weapons while on Rice property. The Policy also describes limited exceptions to the prohibition on possession or storage of weapons at Rice.  You may view the Policy here.
