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 that are still miles from your class.

No Stacked/Tandem Parking at the College Courtyard Apartments

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. 

•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.

If you park on Seminary Street, remember to pick up your new street parking permit from the office. . The permits issued at the beginning of the spring semester expired on June 30, 2016.

We don’t want to you get a ticket so please stop by the office and get your new permit.

Parking is Free and Easy

As many of you have heard, the University of Nevada continues to increase the parking fees on campus. The University has parking fee increases scheduled every year for the next five years. Fortunately, the residents of the College Courtyard Apartments don’t have to worry about these increases. Our residents enjoy free parking that is close to the campus. With our students, instead of driving round and round looking for a parking space you can have another 20 minutes of precious sleep. That’s a real bonus and another benefit of living at the College Courtyard.

Snacks Available

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.

Laundry Rooms

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

No Stacked Parking

Some of our neighboring apartment complexes (to the west and north) have stacked/tandem parking. One car is parked in front of the other.

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.
