The College Courtyard Apartments are located one block west of the University of Nevada campus at 1150 Seminary Avenue (one block off Sierra Street at 11th). Call us at 775-786-1150 for more information or to reserve your spot. Don't delay...we fill up fast. For more information go to collegecourtyard.com. 

Our living rooms include a futon, end tables, coffee table, TV stand and lamp.


Our kitchens include range and oven, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator and pantry. Our kitchens also have a table and four chairs.

Each bedroom is furnished with a bed, dresser, desk and chair. Each bedroom has a full closet. Each bedroom is wired for cable TV and telephone. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the building.


There is a sink and vanity in each bedroom. This is a great amenity. Take time getting ready each day with no roommate pounding on the door.


The new Wiegand Fitness Center is a short walk from the College Courtyard Apartments.




The E. L. Wiegand Fitness Center is a vibrant hub of campus fitness and recreation, offering a gymnasium with three courts for intramural basketball and other court sports, areas for weightlifting, cardio training and a multitude of fitness classes and activities. Additionally, it has an indoor, 1/8th mile running track and stadium stairs for training. Finally, there are lockers and changing rooms and administrative office spaces. The E. L. Wiegand Fitness Center is available to students, faculty and staff.

We have both garage and street parking available (your choice). The garage is gated. No stacked/tandem parking. Parking is Free!


The College Courtyard Apartments are one short block from the center of campus. No waiting for a shuttle (that never comes when you need it) or paying for expensive parking permits where the parking is still miles from your class.

No Stacked/Tandem Parking at the College Courtyard Apartments. It's FREE!

Some of our neighboring apartment complexes (to the east and north - OK, College Terrace) have stacked/tandem parking. One car is parked in front of the other. Can you imagine needing to go somewhere and the owner of the car behind you is nowhere to be found? That won't happen at the College Courtyard. All of our residents have single garage or permit street parking. In the garage or on the street...it's the student's choice.

Security is Important at the College Courtyard Apartments.



Security at the College Courtyard Apartments is a priority. All of our entrances are under 24 hour video surveillance. Recently we installed additional gates and barriers to make the complex even more secure. At night the College Courtyard Apartments are very well lit and there are no dark corners. We encourage our residents to monitor carefully who is buzzed into the courtyard. We are a friendly place to live with just 60 students. Unlike the 700 student party complexes on the far east side of the University, we offer a great environment for the serious student seeking a safe and secure place to live. Google some of the party apartment complexes in the area and see the police calls. Would you want your son or daughter living in that environment (at night?)? We don't think so.

Why the College Courtyard Apartments are a better choice.


The College Courtyard Apartments are the best for University of Nevada student living. Here's a few reasons why: 

•We are on a quiet side street on the West side (the best side) of the University of Nevada. Seminary Avenue is quiet with little traffic (unlike very busy and noisy Sierra Street). 


•You don't need to worry or pay for shuttle service. The shuttles to some apartment complexes are expensive and only come infrequently.


•No stacked/tandem parking. Each resident of the College Courtyard has an assigned parking space or open street side parking (Your choice). Our neighboring apartment complex (College Terrace) has stacked parking - one car behind the other. Very inconvenient. Our parking is FREE!

•Each bedroom has a sink and vanity. No waiting for your roommate to get ready.

•Free DSL/WiFi.

•We have very well insulated apartments with double pane windows. This keeps the power bill low both in the summer and the winter. 

•We pride ourselves in keeping the building in great condition. 

•We are locally owned and operated by University of Nevada graduates - not some faceless corporation or out of the area owner.

There's a reason the College Courtyard Apartments are always full. We have great students as residents. Google our competitors. One was ordered by the City of Reno to hire security guards as there were so many unruly parties. Ask to walk around the complex of our neighbors without being escorted. Sure the model rooms look good.....check out where you really will live. Some don't even shampoo the carpets before you move in. Yes, you get what you pay for. There is a reason we are considered the favorite off campus place for University of Nevada students. We offer the best value, location and amenities for the student dollar. And we are nice people too. We appreciate our residents and want them to truly enjoy their college experience.

 Interesting Fact: The story you've probably heard about lemmings jumping off of cliffs to their deaths is FAKE.

Message from Phyllis

As the semester winds down, all of the students in the College Courtyard Apartments will be focusing on final exams and papers. Please be considerate of your fellow residents who are “burning the midnight oil” and limit excess noise, loud music/TV and parties. I especially want to thank each of you for your cooperation and special effort in helping to keep the complex clean. We continually strive to keep the complex clean, quiet and safe for all of our residents. Happy holidays to each of you and may all of you get A+ on your final exams.

Watch Your Step

As winter arrives, we must be ready for inclement weather and especially snowstorms. Please be careful and watch your step if a snowstorm should occur. We shovel snow and sand the sidewalks and steps after every storm but you should be cautious never the less. The sidewalk on the north side of the building gets little sun in the winter and the steep hill can be treacherous. Please be careful.

Minimum Temp

Per your lease, the minimum temperature in your apartment is 60 degrees. This insures that the pipes do not freeze in extreme cold weather. You will be liable for damage if this temperature minimum is not maintained.

Vacuum

A vacuum is available for your use. If you wish to borrow our vacuum it can be checked out at the office. Please return the vacuum immediately after use, as other students may need to use it.


Laundry Rooms Don’t Like Cold Weather

During the cold winter months it is important that the windows in the laundry rooms remain closed. Open windows may cause the pipes to freeze and cause considerable damage. This will force us to close the laundry rooms until they are repaired. None of us want that to happen so please be careful.

Interesting Fact: Every year on Aug. 5, the Mars Curiosity rover sings itself a sad, solitary "Happy Birthday."

. Please Don’t Drink and Drive

Your safety is important to us. Please don’t drink and drive. If you drink alcohol (please be 21 years of age and older) get a designated driver or walk home. Don’t ruin your life with a DUI or worse, death of yourself or others. It’s not worth it.

Need More Storage Space?

The College Courtyard has storage lockers available for rent for only $30 per month. The 4’ by 5’ lockers are located on the second and third floors. These storage lockers are a great place to store skis, bicycles, or camping equipment. See Phyllis for more information.

Free Wi-Fi/DSL is a $360 Value

In this economy, every dollar saved can help pay for books and tuition. That’s why living at the College Courtyard Apartments is the best value for University of Nevada students. We offer free Wi-Fi/DSL to every bedroom. That free Wi-Fi would cost you $360 per year at other apartment complexes or rental houses. 

Interesting fact: "buttload" is a real measurement of weight.
Interesting Fact: Baby puffins are called pufflings.

Laundry

Please be considerate of your neighbors and do not leave your clothes in the washers or dryers unattended after the washing and drying cycle.

For Your Safety

The safety of our residents is of the highest priority. The College Courtyard Apartments are under 24-hour video surveillance and all entrances are gated. You can do your part to make sure the College Courtyard Apartments are a secure and safe place to live. Never give your key or garage transmitter to others. Report any damage or repairs that may be necessary to maintain safe conditions. That would include lights out in the common areas, parking garage, stairwells, front entrance and laundry rooms.

Interesting Fact:  Your ribs move about 5 million times a year, every time you breathe!

No Beer Kegs

Beer kegs are strictly forbidden at the College Courtyard Apartments.  Kegs are not allowed on the courtyard or in individual apartments. All of your leases clearly state that large gatherings are prohibited. Kegs are only for large gatherings. Please be aware that if you bring a keg onto the property we will begin eviction proceedings immediately.

Your Free Parking Is a $540 Value

Parking at the University of Nevada is expensive. Silver permit parking is real expensive. The annual fee to park in a silver permit lot is $400. The parking lot at the southwest corner of Sierra and 11th is silver permit parking. Right across the street is the College Courtyard Apartments. Our residents enjoy the value of silver permit parking for free. Go to unr.edu and find the parking permit and fee map to compare.

City of Reno Party Ordinance

The Reno City Council approved the Social Host ordinance to provide criminal and administrative penalties for disruptive parties, and to help reduce underage drinking and related issues. The City will issue the property owner a citation and fine if a party is conducted that requires the Reno police to make a visit. As your leases clearly do not allow disruptive parties at the College Courtyard we should not have a problem. Please keep in mind,  however, that your leases clearly state that if we are fined by the City of Reno for a disruptive party we will pass the fine and an administrative penalty on the offending residents.
