First let me start with I AM NOT A LAWYER, nor have I ever taken a law class.
Now, I too, am a student at the UofW (go huskies, hehe).
The way I interpret that part of the student code, since they restrict them, but then say that nothing in that section can deny your constitutional rights, then if you are constitutionally able to carry a gun, I read it as allowing you to do so. Now, would they expell you if you OC'd on campus? Almost definitely. They'd find some good reason to do so and you'd have to do a whole lot of legal battling to get back in.
Now, if you are in legal possession of a WA CPL, then you can 'constitutionally' conceal a pistol and if you're concealing correctly and legally, how and why would anybody know or care? The only time it would come to light that you carried is if you were forced to draw the firearm and if that is the case, you're likely to be able to reason with the dean due to the circumstances.
I own a handgun. I have my CPL. That's all I have to say.
Holy CRAP! I just re-read the RCW and if I'm reading it correctly, those with a CPL are exempt from the GUN FREE ZONE laws! Please someone tell me I'm reading this right: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=9.41.280
