The College Courtyard Is Nevada’s Best Off Campus Location
Location, location, location. There is nothing like the location of the College Courtyard Apartments. We are a half block from the campus and yet we are on a quiet side street. While living at the College Courtyard you can actually get up five minutes before class and still make it on time. No worries about catching a shuttle or trying to find a parking space when you live at the College Courtyard. This is just one more reason this is a great place to live.

Message from Phyllis
As the final days of the spring semester wind down I want to wish all of you the best of luck on your final exams and papers. I know that most of you have worked very hard this semester and you should be proud of your accomplishments. As we head into the summer, please remember that many students are taking classes and that we need to ensure that we have a good study atmosphere. Keep noise to a minimum and be mindful of you neighbors. Many of our students work during the summer as well and need to get a good night of sleep. Your cooperation will be appreciated by all. Have a great summer.
Parking Is Free And Easy
As many of you know, the
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 or waiting for a shuttle bus you
can have another 20 minutes of precious sleep. That’s a real bonus and another
benefit of living at the College Courtyard. University of Nevada

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

Need Storage For The Summer?
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.
The College Courtyard Apartments are non-smoking student residences. Smoking is prohibited in the apartments, on the walkways, balconies and the courtyard. Guests entering the apartments with a cigarette may extinguish them in the urns by the front gate.

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.
Please Don’t Drink and Drive
For your safety and the safety of others, please don’t drink and drive. Your futures are too bright to be wasted by a DUI or worse. Get a designated driver, walk or call a taxi but please do not get behind the wheel of a car while under the influence.
