Important Update Regarding Firearms on Community College of Denver Campuses

Memo from Colorado Community College System (CCCS)


Dear Community College of Denver Students and Employees: 


We wanted to make you aware of a new state law (Senate Bill 24-131) that affects the carrying of firearms on Community College of Denver campuses. 


As of July 1, 2024, state law will prohibit carrying firearms on college campuses, including all Community College of Denver buildings and campus grounds, unless a limited exception applies. This ban applies to all individuals, including students, employees, guests and visitors, including those who hold a valid permit for concealed carry.  


Where Firearms Are Permitted

Individuals who carry a firearm in accordance with a valid concealed carry permit may only carry firearms in parking areas. Students enrolled in academic programs that utilize firearms will be permitted to use firearms for approved educational purposes, subject to the rules and protocols of the program. The law continues to permit campus police and safety personnel to carry and use firearms on campus.


What You Can Do

To comply with the new law, students, employees, guests and visitors should leave firearms at home or keep them properly secured in their vehicles while on campus. Firearms stored in vehicles must be appropriately locked and out of plain view as required by law, including House Bill 24-1348. For questions or concerns, please refer to Community College of Denver's Campus Safety page
