Campus Carry Policy accepted by UNT System Board of Regents

Feb. 26, 2016

Dear UNT community,

This morning, the UNT System Board of Regents accepted UNT's Campus Carry Policy as part of its quarterly meeting. This finalizes a campus carry policy for UNT that was created with extensive input from our community.

I want to sincerely thank the members of UNT’s Campus Carry Task Force and all students, faculty and staff members who participated in the many town halls and provided comments online and through email.

The task force began its work in September 2015 and recommended a draft policy to me in December. That policy was presented to campus for comment in January and February and was amended in response to community input prior to being presented to the Board of Regents for review.

We will soon be announcing dates for educational training sessions for students, faculty and staff. In the meantime, you can learn more about UNT’s Campus Carry Policy and find updates at The policy and law go into effect on Aug. 1 of this year.

I hope that you will take advantage of these training opportunities as they become available.


Neal Smatresk

UNT President
