Nevada prohibits any person from carrying or possessing a firearm on the property of the Nevada System of Higher Education (state university and college system), a private or public school or child care facility, or while in a vehicle of a private or public school or child care facility.1
Nevada prohibits concealed firearms permittees from carrying a concealed firearm while on the premises of a public building located on the property of a public school, a child care facility, or the property of the Nevada System of Higher Education, without specific written permission.2
This prohibition does not restrict the possession of a firearm on the property of a private or public school or child care facility by a: 1) peace officer; 2) school security guard; or 3) person having written permission from the president of a branch or facility of the Nevada System of Higher Education, the principal of the private or public school, or the person designated by a child care facility to give permission to carry or possess the firearm. The possession of a firearm is also permissible at a child care facility located at or in the home of a natural person by the person who owns or operates the facility, as long as the person resides in the home and complies with any laws governing the possession of such a weapon.3
