In order to protect all Brigham Young University–Hawaii ("BYU–Hawaii" or "university") personnel, weapons are prohibited on university property. However, vocational tools required for the maintenance of the BYU–Hawaii campus are permitted after proper training.
All federal, state, county, and municipal laws concerning the carrying and possession of firearms are in effect and shall be enforced on the BYU–Hawaii campus.
The storing, possessing, carrying (openly or concealed), or brandishing of a firearm, ammunition, or explosive material on university property shall not be permitted.
Violation of this policy may result in removal, prosecution, suspension, termination, and/or expulsion from the university.
Faculty and staff living in university housing are discouraged from having weapons. For those that have them, they should be kept in locked and secured places. Ammunition should be kept in a separate secured location. The same applies to bows and arrows. Keep them separate and secure.
