This is an update to the UTHSCSA plan to implement a 2015 law that requires public campuses to allow the concealed carry of handguns. Key provisions of the law can be found here. Certain areas on campus will be designated “gun-free zones.”

The UTHSCSA plan was created with the input of representatives of faculty and students from each of the schools at the Health Science Center, and approved by President William L. Henrich. The plan will be sent to the UT System Board of Regents who will approve or amend the plan before the concealed carry law is implemented on August 1, 2016.

The plan designates “gun-free zones” in the following areas:

  • Medical School
  • Dental School
  • Nursing School
  • Briscoe Library
  • Basic Science Building
  • Pestana Lecture Hall
  • Academic Learning & Teaching Center
  • Academic and Administration Building
  • South Texas Research Facility
  • Center for Oral Healthcare
  • Cancer Therapy & Research Center
  • McDermott Clinical Science Building
  • Medical Arts & Research Center
  • Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute
  • Research Administration Building

All exclusion zones are explained here. Maps and lists of excluded and included buildings can be found here.
