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

The E.L. Weigand Fitness Center is a vibrant hub of the campus fitness and recreation, offering a gymnasium with three courts for intramural basketball and other court sports, areas for weight lifting, cardio training, and a multitude of fitness classes and activities. Additionally, it has an indoor, 1/8thmile track and stadium stairs for training. Finally, there are lockers and changing rooms and administrative office spaces. The E.L. Weigand Fitness Center is available to all 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. We've 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 and Virginia 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! We guarantee all of our residents parking either on the street or in the parking garage.

•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. THERE ARE NO HIDDEN FEES LIKE MOST OF THE STUDENT HOUSING COMPLEXES AROUND UNR. And we are nice people too. We appreciate our residents and want them to truly enjoy their college experience.

Your Free Parking Is a $570 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 $570. 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.

Watch Your Step

During the winter months we make every effort to keep the sidewalks and stairs free of snow and ice. Never the less, please use caution after a storm. Use the handrails on the stairs and step carefully when on the sidewalk to the north of the building as it is steep and gets little sun.

Interesting Fact: A snail can sleep for three years.

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.

No Hover Boards

Until a safe hover board is manufactured, they are banned from the College Courtyard Apartments. These devices have proved to be dangerous——especially when being charged.

Interesting Fact: The leg bones of a bat are so thin that no bat can walk.

.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: The microwave was invented after a researcher walked by a radar tube and the chocolate bar in his pocket melted.

 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 is a $540 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 to every bedroom. That free Wi-Fi would cost you $540 per year at other apartment complexes or rental houses. 

No Parking

The area in front of the dumpster is a no parking zone. Cars parked in the area in front of the dumpster are subject to towing. In addition, Reno Disposal writes down the license plate number of cars that block the dumpster and violators may have to pay for additional garbage pickups.

Interesting Fact: The chicken is one of the few things that man eats before it's born and after it's dead.

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.

Interesting Fact: There are only four words in the English language which end in "-dous": tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous.

2020/2021 School Year

Residents wishing to stay at the College Courtyard after their current lease expires must inform Phyllis by February 15, 2020.  If notice is not received by February 15th  we will assume that you intend to vacate your apartment when your lease expires and we will begin the process of leasing it to new students. Thank you for choosing us as your home.

Watch the Gate

Please be very careful when driving through the garage gate. If the gate is going down, DO NOT try to slip under the gate. Once the gate begins to go down it will not stop if you press the button on the garage gate opener. It will only stop when it hits something and it could do considerable damage to both your car and the gate if this occurs. The gate is set to stay up an adequate amount of time for one car. You will be held responsible for any damage if the camera shows that you tried to slip through the gate inappropriately

Interesting Fact: Americans on average eat 18 acres of pizza every day.
Interesting Fact: Horses can't vomit.

Sleep In, We’re a 5 Minute Walk to Class

The location of the College Courtyard Apartments is the best for students. We are on a quiet side street, just one block west of the University of Nevada campus.

Please be considerate of your roommates and neighbors and keep noise to a minimum. We will not tolerate loud parties on the Courtyard or in the apartments and will take appropriate action against those residents who violate the noise rules.

No Smoking

The College Courtyard Apartments are non-smoking student residences. Smoking is prohibited in the apartments, on the walkways, balconies and the courtyard.

Reserved Parking

Only residents may park in the garage and only in their assigned spaces. Cars that are parked in spaces not assigned to them will be booted and there is an $80 fee to remove the boot. If someone is in your assigned parking space call 691-8290 and a boot will be placed on the car.

Interesting Fact: Swedish meatballs originated from a recipe King Charles XII brought back from Turkey in the early 1800s.

Look Both Ways

It is very important that all of you be careful when crossing Sierra Street. Even though the crosswalk is well marked many drivers are speeding or not paying attention to pedestrians. We are pleased the City has added flashing lights to the crosswalk.

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. Please 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.

Please Don’t Drink and Drive

We want to remind all of our students not to drink and drive. Don’t ruin your life with a DUI or worse a fatal car accident by drinking and driving. Call a cab, get a designated driver who will not drink or walk home. The life you may be saving could be your own.

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.
