Weapons Policy

Dear Residential Student:

The Office of Residence Services is committed to preserving the safety, security, and well-being of all residential students and their guests. The purpose of this letter is to inform students, parents, siblings, and guests who may assist a student in packing and moving to campus, of some important policies. With this in mind, please take a moment to read the following statement with regards to items that are prohibited on campus. The Wright State University Student Handbook and Residence Services Sourcebook state:

The use, possession, or carrying of weapons, including, but not limited to, pistols, rifles, shotguns, air soft guns, paintball guns, all pellet/BB guns, dangerous knives, ammunition, or any stun device, or other dangerous weapons is prohibited while on university-owned or controlled property, or at university-sponsored or supervised activities, except by university police officers and other persons specifically authorized by the University. For fire and general safety reasons the possession of firearms, ammunition, firecrackers, explosive or combustible materials, and/or injury threatening weapons are strictly prohibited.

Individuals found to be in possession of a firearm may be subject to immediate cancellation of their Campus Housing Agreements and will face further university disciplinary and/or criminal action. The above mentioned policy also applies to guests of residents when they are visiting residents on campus.

A resident who hosts a guest is responsible for the guest's conduct at all times, as well as any damages incurred by that guest. Guests must comply with all university and community policies. Guests who violate a policy may be asked to leave the community and/or university property, and may be subject to further university action.

Please be aware of these policies when considering which items to bring to campus. Every student is responsible for knowing the rules and regulations of the university, so it is important for you to read the Wright State University:
