KUMC Firearms and Weapons Policy
To outline the KUMC policy on Firearms and Weapons on campus.
Students, faculty, staff, or visitors
In accordance with long-standing administrative policies of the University of Kansas, KUMC prohibits the carry of weapons of any type on our campuses. This policy applies to all students, including those licensed for concealed carry. Similarly, this policy prohibits employees from concealed carry on campus except when in private conveyances.
The only exceptions are those recognized under the State of Kansas Personal Family and Protection Act (K.S.A. 75-7c01 et. seq.), for the concealed carry of handguns by licensed visitors and guests. Such visitors and guests, even if licensed for concealed carry of handguns, may never bring handguns into any building (other than parking garages) on the KU Medical Center campuses in Kansas City and Wichita.
Violations of this policy may result in disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal of employees or expulsion of students. Violators also may be asked to leave University property, and if they refuse to do so, such refusal may constitute an unlawful trespass.
