Campus Carry
At San Jacinto College, safety is a priority for our students, our faculty and staff, and our visitors. On Tuesday, August 1, 2017, the Senate Bill 11 from the 84th Texas legislature, also known as the Campus Carry law, went into effect for Texas community colleges, including San Jacinto College. This allows license to carry holders to generally carry concealed handguns at San Jacinto College and other public community colleges in Texas. The law and the San Jacinto College policy can be found online at http://www.sanjac.edu/campus-carry.

Here are a few key points about the law:
1. The open carry of handguns on campus is prohibited.
2. License to carry holders must carry their handguns on or about their person or secure their handguns in a locked motor vehicle at all times while on campus. There may be times that students and faculty may not be able to keep a backpack or handbag near their person at all times during a class. One example is during test times when you may be required to be separated from your backpack or handbag. Remember to make the necessary arrangements to legally store your handgun in a locked motor vehicle in advance. San Jacinto College does not provide any storage for handguns. It is a violation of the law if your handgun is not on or about your person.
3. There are areas designated as exclusion zones on each San Jacinto College campus. The concealed carry of a handgun is prohibited in these designated exclusion zones. These areas are clearly marked by signage notifying license to carry holders that entry with a concealed handgun is prohibited.

Questions about the law and the San Jacinto College policy can be directed to the San Jacinto College Police Department at 281-476-9128 or via email at http://www.sanjac.edu/campus-carry.
