    Nor versus or?

    Hello,

    Shall we use "nor" or "or" in this sentence:

    "no one in the school, nor the university wants to see you"

    versus

    "no one in the school, or the university wants to see you"?

    No-one in the school or the university wants to see you.

    No comma is needed in this sentence.

    I would use "or" and I would leave out the comma after "school".
