Laws Concerning Carrying Concealed Firearms on Campus in Wisconsin


In 2011, Governor Walker signed into a law, sweeping changes to the state’s gun laws.  At the time, Wisconsin was one of only two states to prohibit the carrying on concealed firearms.  The 2011 Senate Bill 93 changed things in many areas, including allowing concealed weapons on college campuses (public and private).  The law contains a provision that allows colleges to post signs prohibiting the carrying of concealed weapons in buildings on campus.

As of March 15, 2024, no private or public universities, colleges, or community colleges permit weapons inside of buildings.  No private universities permit weapons on campus grounds.
