Guns On Campus

As you may have heard, a new state law in Florida that becomes effective July 1 will allow employees who have a concealed weapons permit to keep their guns in their cars while at work.

We anticipate some media coverage regarding the new law and thought it would be helpful to clarify that it does not apply to the University of Florida.

The law makes special exception for educational institutions, including the University of Florida. In addition, Florida statute 790.115 prohibits guns on campus.

Please be aware that University Regulation 6C1-2.001 is still in effect, which strictly prohibits guns on campus or any land or property occupied by the University of Florida. We urge you to review this regulation at or contact the UF Police Department at (352) 392-1409 if you have any questions.
