BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- The University of Colorado is barring students with concealed carry permits from bringing guns into dorms on its Boulder campus.

The policy announced Thursday is in response to a March Colorado Supreme Court ruling that said CU can't ban permit holders from bringing guns to campus.

The university also said graduate students who live in university housing off the main campus will be able to have guns in their apartments if they're kept in a safe.

Chancellor Phillip DiStefano said the policy is a reasonable way to adhere to the court's ruling and protect students, faculty and staff.

Ninety-six percent of undergraduate students who live in dorms are under 21 and can't possess a concealed carry permit. Campus police say 0.6 percent of people on campus have concealed carry permits.
