Campus Carry at Laredo College

 Campus Carry at Laredo College

As of June 2015, Texas Governor Gregg Abbott signed Senate Bill 11, which permits licensed individuals to carry concealed handguns on public college and university campuses in Texas beginning August 1, 2017. After meaningful discussions with students, staff, and faculty regarding safety considerations, the nature of the student population, and the uniqueness of the campus environment, Laredo College has adopted rules and regulations on Campus Carry.

The following areas are designated as “No-Carry” zones where the carry of handguns is strictly prohibited:

1.   All day care facilities located at Laredo College;

2.   All outdoor sports complexes and fields located at Fort McIntosh and the South Campuses;
