With striking residence halls, beautiful brick and ivy buildings, an involved student government and active fraternities and sororities, the University of Nevada, Reno offers a classic college student experience that you’ll remember for a lifetime.
Our campus is beautiful, complete with towering green trees and brick buildings. There are coffee shops, sports, restaurants and a multitude of great study spots. Whether you are a prospective student or already taking classes, feel free to explore and see what makes "the campus on the hill" so special.
The university is located just north of where Interstate 80 meets downtown Reno.
Nestled at the base of the Sierra Nevada, Reno is closer to cities such as Sacramento and San Francisco than Las Vegas. In contrast to Las Vegas, Reno offers its residents an invigorating taste of all four seasons. Channeling the crystal waters of Lake Tahoe, the Truckee River runs leisurely through downtown Reno. Numerous mountain ranges rise ruggedly from the desert basin, providing stunning views and unmatched sunsets. When you breathe the crisp mountain air and smell the hint of sagebrush on the breeze, you'll know you're in Reno.
Reno, the “The Biggest Little City in the World,” and sister city, Sparks, combine for a population of close to 400,000. Reno offers a favorable quality of life that has been recognized by numerous national sources, including Forbes magazine. Reno’s population enjoys an array of cultural activities, including museums, numerous theatre companies, a symphony, ballet and opera. There are several major venues for concerts, sporting events and other live performances, including Lawlor Events Center on campus and the Reno Events Center, located less than a 10-minute walk from campus.
We're glad you are considering living in a residence hall. The University of Nevada offers a variety of living options for the student who chooses to live on campus. The Department of Residential Life, Housing and Food Service is committed to providing you with resources and experiences that will complement your academics. We feel that living on campus will be a very special and rewarding part of your education at the University of Nevada.
