Firearm Storage Information


To provide for the safe and secure storage of firearms belonging to students of the University of Idaho.

The Campus division of the Moscow Police Department has agreed to provid​e storage of firearms belonging to University of Idaho students. It is the desire of the University of Idaho and the Moscow Police Department to make the students property as accessible as possible. With this in mind, the following procedures will be used.

  • All weapons to be checked in must be brought to the weapons storage facility at Line and Third Street.
  • Students are encouragted to call 208.882.COPS or use the call box on the exterior of the building to have an officer assist with check in or check out. Students may check in or check out ​their weapons at anytime.
  • All students checking firearms in or out must have a picture identification and the "Firearms storage card" they received when they initially checked their firearms in. If the student has lost the "Firearms storage card" they will be given their firearm only if their photo identification signature matches the original signature on the liability form on file. If it is determined that the person is the legal owner of the firearm, they can have the firearm released to them. They must contact an officer to have a new card issued.
  • University of Idaho rules require all firearms to be encased and have a trigger lock attached.
  • Firearms without a trigger lock attached will not be accepted.
  • Loaded firearms will not be accepted.
  • Ammunition can not be stored at the weapons storage facility. Ammunition can not be stored in the University of Idaho Residence halls​.
  • Firearms not encased will not be accepted.

Any questio​ns should be directed to the Campus Division Commander, Lt. Lehmitz at 208.883.7127.
