In compliance with Washington State Firearms Policy WAC 106-127-700, CWU requires all students living ON CAMPUS to store their firearms with the CWU Police Department free of charge. Upon checking a firearm in to the Police Department, students will be required to complete a Weapons Storage Form, agree to a criminal history check and have a valid driver's license present. The Police Department will assign each gun an individual storage box located in a locked, secured area.
When a student wishes to check out their gun for use or permanently, they must bring their photo I.D into the Police Department and agree to a criminal background check. Once cleared of the background check, the firearm will be released to the student.
Concealed weapons are not to be carried on University property. Concealed weapons permit holders will notify University Police for instructions and information about the temporary weapons storage. For further information, on the possession and storage of dangerous weapons, contact the CWU Police Department at the Public Safety Building or call 509-963-2959
