Weapons on Campus Information
Clayton State University is committed to providing a safe environment for our students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
The State of Georgia passed a law, effective on July 1, 2017, authorizing anyone who is properly licensed to carry a handgun in a concealed manner on property owned or leased by its public colleges and universities, but with specific exceptions where firearms are still prohibited (reference http://www.usg.edu/hb280/)
For additional information and Q&A for HB280, visit http://www.usg.edu/hb280/additional_information.
Possession of other “weapons” as identified in O.C.G.A. 16-11-127(a)(4) is still prohibited on campus.
For any questions or concerns, contact the Department of Public Safety.
