BOULDER, Colo. -
Colorado's new segregated "gun dorms" for students with valid concealed-carry permits have attracted zero students.
The Daily Camera newspaper reports that since the University of Colorado's Boulder and Colorado Springs campuses began segregating dorms for students with valid concealed-carry permits this year, not a single student has asked to live where guns are allowed.
On Aug. 16, CU announced it would establish residential areas for students over age 21 with a permit to hold a concealed handgun. In all other dormitories, guns are banned.

Wow, those other dorms are death traps
Why would they want to be segregated?
Political stunt with the results engineered in advance.
Not a brilliant thing to advertise, a dorm full of unarmed students (tho that’s pretty much that status in dorms across the country),
What? Are all the other dorms co-ed?
Probably several factors involved. These are the older students so a higher percentage probably have apartments off campus. CU probably picked the worst dorms and made them the most difficult to get into.
I’m certainly not going to advertise to anyone who may wish to know that I have a CCW, a firearm and where that firearm is.
Seems like an incredibly silly idea, also it makes it seem like the leprocy dorms or something...
One of my alma maters just announced that all the campus frats and sororities must be co-ed. Heh.
Part of the elitist liberal’s plan.
That’s exactly what I was thinking. Besides the frat boys, students don’t really like living in the dorms (at least I didn’t) and most move into on-or-off campus apartments in their second year and beyond. Plus, like someone else said, the school probably limited the space to the worst dorm rooms on campus.
Who lives in a dorm at age 21? I wouldn’t even live in base housing by the time I was 21.
Aren’t most frats and sororities off campus though?
I would have thought the 0 students would be afraid of guns and some of those idiots who actually believe that 0 really “has their back”.
I don’t really believe this. It is too much in one direction.
What a crock, very few kids 21 years old and over live in the dorms anyway. They all move off campus by sophomore year.
Separate but equal.
No kidding. Reminds me of when the Illinois Attorney General wanted to publish FOID owners....
