Campus Firearms Policy graphic

The United States Supreme Court has recognized that schools are sensitive places where prohibitions on the possession of firearms are permitted. The statutory prohibition of weapons, including firearms on campus, is longstanding. The prohibition contributes to the welcoming and open nature of the NSHE institutions and promotes an atmosphere conducive to learning.

Nevada law provides authority for NSHE to identify certain circumstances when weapons and/or concealed firearms may be permitted on its premises. This policy sets forth the circumstances and processes required to be followed for a person to obtain permission to carry a weapon or firearm on NSHE campuses. Policy includes a requirement for written permission from the President. Contact Campus Security at 775-934-4923 or
