The University of Minnesota Student Conduct Code prohibits possession of weapons by students on campus. Specifically, Subdivision 8 of the Board of Regents Policy on Student Conduct defines the following as disciplinary offenses actionable by the University: “Possession of firearms, incendiary devices, explosives, articles, or substances usable as weapons or means of disruption of legitimate campus functions, activities, or assemblies; or using firearms, incendiary devices, explosives, articles, or substances calculated to intimidate, disturb, discomfort, or injure a member of the University community, except in those instances when expressly authorized by the head of a University department whose activities properly require the use or possession of any of the enumerated items.”
