They only have to post 1. There has never been a test case saying it has to be posted everywhere.
To properly post 30.06 signs, it must be on every entrance available as far as I know (there are a million posts elsewhere, describing exactly this conundrum), although being a school, it might be different set of rules.
Those million posts aren't relevant. No sign has to be posted anywhere to satisfy effective notice under 30.06. ;-)

This means, literally, it is not a violation of the law to carry on a campus unless the school has posted 30.06 signs. Then it would become trespass and a Class A misdemeanor.
Which might be mildly expensive considering the sheer number of buildings and doors they would have to contend with. But more importantly, it would be very aesthetically distasteful.
Not for students or faculty. Effective notice can be part of registration. Done. If there are public entrances they cover the general public with posting those doors. If they want to prohibit carry, I think they can and will. At least it's not the same penalty...it sounds like anyway.
