The University of Colorado said it is going to begin segregating students with valid gun permits when assigning on-campus housing.
Two CU campuses - the main campus in Boulder and another in Colorado Springs - will establish a designated residential area for students over the age of 21 with gun permits, school officials told the Denver Post.
In any other housing facility, guns will be banned.
"The main dorms on the main campus will not allow any concealed-carry weapons," CU-Boulder spokesman Bronson Hilliard said.
School officials said they began considering the policy in March, shortly after Colorado’s Supreme Court ruled that CU can’t ban permit holders from bringing guns to campus. The new dorm ban, announced Thursday, will be met with legal challenges.
"We're going to look into it further, but it's not surprising that the campuses are trying to circumvent the Colorado Supreme Court ruling," Kurt Mueller, an official with the pro-gun group Students for Concealed Carry, told the Post.
Less than 1% of CU’s student-body population is believed to have concealed-carry permits.
One such permit holder, a graduate student at CU-Denver, catapulted into notoriety last month after allegedly carrying out a midnight massacre at a crowded suburban Denver theater. There has been no indication that accused Aurora shooter James Holmes brought guns to campus.
