Consistent with the University’s no weapons policy on campus, the University’s commercial tenants shall prohibit weapons in the leased premises to the extent permitted under 2011 Wisconsin Act 35 and post “Weapons are prohibited in this building” or equivalent signs at the entrance to the leased premises. The University will take into account a commercial tenant’s compliance with this policy and any potential safety issues involving University employees, students, and invitees when deciding whether to renew a commercial tenant’s lease and to perform any discretionary acts as landlord.

Commercial tenants acknowledge that this policy goes to the essence of the tenant’s lease and that the landlord intends to enforce strictly each of its obligations and exercise all rights available to landlord as a result of any violations.

Tenants should address any questions concerning this policy to the Marquette University Police Department.
