Concealed Carry Policy

Based on 2011 Wisconsin Act 35, it is legal for licensed individuals to be armed with a concealed weapon. However, Wisconsin Administrative Code Chapter UWS 18.10(3) prohibits a person from carrying, possessing, or using any dangerous weapon on university lands or in university buildings or facilities with certain exceptions. As an example, an exception exists for law enforcement officials.
