Laws Concerning Carrying Concealed Firearms on Campus in Michigan

Michigan law expressly prohibits concealed handgun license holders from carrying on or in a dormitory or classroom of a community college, college, or university. See Mich. Comp. Laws § 750.237a(1)(h). Universities also retain the authority to restrict firearms on other parts of campus, and generally choose to do so, like the University of Michigan.

However, Michigan State University Board of Trustees does allow visitors (but not employees or students) to carry concealed firearms on university property, except inside dormitories and classrooms.
