Because of recent changes in Illinois law, the University has had to update its policy prohibiting firearms and weapons on campus.
Despite this update, the substance of IIT’s policy remains the same: In general, carrying or bringing any type of firearm or other weapon in, on or to the campus or property of IIT is expressly prohibited. This prohibition applies even if you have all of the requisite permits to carry the firearm or weapon, including a concealed carry permit. The policy expressly defines “firearm,” “weapon,” “campus” and “property of IIT.”
The policy does contain a very limited number of narrowly tailored exceptions, such as allowing ROTC to utilize firearms for training and permitting personnel of the Department of Public Safety and on duty police officers to carry firearms.
The link to the full, updated policy is listed below and everyone should familiarize themselves with it, as the policy will be strictly enforced: Concealed Carry and Prohibition Regarding Firearms and Weapons On Campus Policy.
