Weapon Storage

Weapons are not permitted on campus. You can store your weapon at Public Safety and Police Services by filing out the weapon registration on Banweb under Personal Information, Weapons Registration.  Then bring your weapon to Public Safety and Police Services at any time.

All persons storing firearm(s) must ensure that the weapon is rendered 'safe' BEFORE handing the weapon to an officer or dispatcher.  For the purpose of this process, the word 'safe' means that the weapon is unloaded, the safety (if applicable) is engaged and a trigger lock or chamber block (either or, depending on the type of weapon) is in place and clearly visible.  Weapons that do not meet this condition will not be accepted.  If you do not have, or have not had the opportunity to purchase a trigger lock, trigger locks are available at the Public Safety and Police Services building on a temporary basis and may be used until you are able to purchase your own.  Currently we do not have any chamber blocks on hand.

The Department of Public Safety and Police Services reserves the right to refuse to return any weapon if it appears that the person receiving the weapon may be:

  • Intoxicated (either drugs or alcohol)
  • Emotionally unstable
  • Acting irrationally
  • Any reason the department feels that, by returning the weapon may jeopardize the safety of any person.

Under the above circumstances, weapons will be returned only if and when it appears that whatever condition caused the refusal to return the weapon has been rectified.

Your HuskyCard (or M number and valid photo ID) is required to check-in or remove a registered weapon.  Cases will not be stored, but are required for check-out of guns.

Weapons check out time: 6 AM until 8 PM
Weapons check in time: 24 hours a Day
