All members of the Oxy community, including students, are responsible for knowing the following:

The possession, storage, or use of firearms, ammunition or explosives of any type (including fireworks), chemicals or weapons of any sort is not permitted anywhere on campus. This includes hunting bows and arrows and hunting knives. The term "weapon" means firearms, explosives, metal knuckles, and knives with blades more than 3 inches long, or any other instrument identified as a weapon in published College policies and the California Penal Code. It is also a violation of this policy to use an item with a lawful purpose (i.e. scissors, kitchen knives, baseball bat) in a manner which could or does result in an act of violence or a threat of violence against another person. Any item that is brandished as a weapon will be treated as a violation of College policy. Items include, but are not limited to, use of a fake or toy gun, brandishing a pocket knife, or a hand held under clothing to simulate a weapon. 

If a student brings an item to campus which is not covered by this Policy but which, in the Dean of Students’ discretion, poses a danger to the community, the student will be asked to remove it from campus.  Failure to do so is a violation of this Policy and can result in a disciplinary sanction. 

Possessing dangerous chemicals (unless authorized for an academic purpose and used and stored consistent with that purpose) is prohibited. This includes combustibles in containers such as gasoline cans.
