    You need to post your question in the Michigan section.

    Moved this state specific question to the proper sub-forum.

    If you have a cpl you can carry on campus, jut not in dorms and classrooms. Your vehicle should never be in a dorm or in a classroom, so I'd say you are good legally. If you are a student you can face academic sanctions for violating a rule, but I doubt it will ever get to that.

    Carry on campus w/permit - cite please.

    The last phrase is a very expensive gambit as if kicked out of school for rules violation(s), it will be next to impossible to get accepted by another reputable school.

    (h) A dormitory or classroom of a community college, college, or university.

    OP was asking out vehicle carry, by definition in MI is concealed. So he would need CPL and to follow CPL PFZ.


    Its up to the OP to decide what he/she is comfortable with.

    Just keep in mind that there are two (2) obstacles to overcome.

    First, what does state law say about carrying on campus (i.e. pistol-free zones, etc.) and in a vehicle (i.e. concealed carry). [violation may be a criminal matter].

    Second, regardless of state law, what is the school weapon's policy [punishment for violation is probably limited to academic sanctions and/or expulsion].

    Might I also inject it all depends on what campus you are on as well. Micro nations with the ability to generate laws of their own (U of M for example) might be a bigger problem then say the local community college.

    Your mileage may vary. I personally would think with the CPL required to transport in a car in the first place, locking up your gun in a hidden gun safe prior to entering campus property would exempt you from any legal problems on most campuses (correct me if I am wrong, U of M), BUT you really need to check the student handbooks and university polices to be sure they aren't gonna boot you because they can.

    Everybody is Wrong

    If for no other reason than the college hasn't been identified and the rules are not uniform. Assuming emoo-321 is legit, then he needs to contact a local attorney. If he follows the advice being given here, expulsion will be the least of his worries.
