University Weapons Policy

The University prohibits weapons of any kind on University property, including all buildings and grounds, except weapons carried by an officer of the Sewanee Police department while on duty.  Anyone failing to adhere to the Weapons Policy is subject to fines and penalties. Please note: Ignorance of the policy does not remove responsibility from fines and penalties.

In the State of Tennessee it is against the law to carry a weapon on school property and constitutes a Class E Felony. For more detailed information on state weapons laws read TCA 39-17-1309
