In an Oregon Court of Appeals case (2011), three judges concluded that Oregon public colleges and universities no longer have authority to ban weapons on the physical grounds of a campus. Each school does however, have discretion as to whether to permit concealed handguns inside buildings, dormitories, event centers, and classrooms. Private colleges and universities may still prohibit weapons throughout the entire campus including grounds. [People who enter business relationships with state universities must agree not to carry guns on campus property. Those include students, employees, contractors, people buying tickets to university events or people renting university property.]
On March, 2, 2012, the Oregon Higher Education Coordinating Commission, FKA (the Oregon Higher Education Board) voted unanimously to ban weapons in all seven state colleges and universities, except for active duty military personnel and law enforcement, or some schools with special written permission.
