University policy prohibits the possession of firearms, ammunition or other dangerous weapons on campus or in student housing. Students, Staff and Faculty are welcome to use our bins for weapon storage.
UNL Police provide a FREE storage area for firearms which will be checked out to the owner who has a prescribed identification. A matching identification is placed inside of the bin to confirm the owner's identity. The owner will be given a key for one of the bins two locks. University Police maintains the other key and will be the contact for the owner when they would like to retrieve their weapon.
The bins were created so that campus persons would not store their weapons in residence hall rooms, academic buildings or vehicles. Maintaining the weapons at the department provides a safe environment.
University Police will be available to check out weapons 24 hours a day. If you would like to view the bins before storing your weapon stop in at the UNL Police Department. We are located in the 17th and "R" Street parking garage (300 N.17th Street).
