BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- 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 (http://bit.ly/TlAN0N ).

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.

Gun rights activists say the lack of students seeking "gun dorms" could be because students who carry concealed weapons don't want to move.

Students with permits who choose to live in an unapproved dorm aren't allowed to have their weapons in their rooms.
