Safety and Security

Campus Carry

On July 1, Senate Bill 10, the Campus Self-Defense Act, will take effect in West Virginia. Passed by the West Virginia Legislature in 2023, the Campus Self-Defense Act allows a person to carry a concealed pistol or revolver on the grounds of an institution of higher education, with some exceptions, if that person has a current and valid license to carry a concealed deadly weapon.

The Vice President for Legal, Governmental & External Affairs and Chief Legal Officer/General Counsel serves as the Security Coordinator and oversees all security related activities on campus. Concerns regarding security should be directed to the Vice President for Legal, Governmental & External Affairs and Chief Legal Counsel office at 304-647-6325, or to Belinda Evans, Security Administrator at 304-647-6401.

Those in need of assistance may contact the WVSOM security office, located at E Building, Room E126E, either by phone or text message at 304-647-8911.
