Message from Phyllis

Please keep in mind that many of the residents of the College Courtyard Apartments are taking summer classes. These classes are very intense and the need for a quiet study environment is important. Please be considerate of your fellow residents who are “burning the midnight oil” and limit excess noise, loud music/TV and parties. I would also like to thank each of you for your cooperation and special effort in helping to keep the complex clean during the pandemic. We continually strive to keep the complex clean, quiet and safe for all of our residents. Have a great summer and be safe!!

Interesting Fact Flamingoes aren’t born pink. They actually come into the world with grey/white feathers and only develop a pinkish hue after starting a diet of brine shrimp and blue-green algae. 

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 guaranteed 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.

 Interesting Fact Before we had toilet paper, Americans used corn husks.

 Interesting Fact: You can see four states from Chicago’s Willis Tower.

 Street Parking

 If you park on the street, new permits will be available the last week of the month at the College Courtyard office.

 Interesting Fact: In an average lifetime, people eat around 70 assorted insects while sleeping.

 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.

Need Storage For The Summer?

The College Courtyard has storage lockers available for rent for only $35 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.

Garbage Tossing Is Not Sport

 

Please be considerate and do not throw your garbage from the stairwell landing towards the dumpster. Many times, your aim is not on target and a mess is created.  This is both unsightly and unsanitary. We would appreciate your cooperation

 Interesting Fact: The blob of toothpaste on your toothbrush has a name: Nurdle.

 Interesting Fact: John Quincy Adams had a pet alligator.

Delivery companies such as Prime, UPS and FedEx will have delivery codes so they can open the gate. A camera will monitor every person who comes through the gate and save it to the cloud.

 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 Hover Board

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. Having a hover board in your apartment could lead to eviction.

 Security is Important

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.

 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 an Uber, get a designated driver who will not drink or walk home. The life you may be saving could be your own.

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.

Interesting Fact: Due to Covid-19 lockdowns, deodorant sales declined, and ice cream sales soared.

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.

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: A cloud weighs around a million tons.

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.

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.

Interesting Fact: A group of goldfish is called a "troubling".

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. Having a hover board in your apartment could lead to eviction.

More Interesting Facts: The inventor of the microwave appliance received only $2 for his discovery.

Enjoy the Courtyard

We will be putting the chairs and umbrellas out later this month. Please keep the courtyard clean after you have used the BBQ and make sure it is in good shape for other students.

Security is Important

Security at the College Courtyard Apartments is a priority. All of our entrances are under 24 hour video surveillance. Our Verkada system allows all of our residents to see who is at the front gate and unlock the gate so their friends, relatives, or package deliveries can safely enter the courtyard. 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.

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.

We have both garage and street parking available. 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. 

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. 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. 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.

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 DSL to every bedroom. That free DSL would cost you $540 per year at other apartment complexes or rental houses.

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. We also ask that whenever possible you walk in groups and never alone at night. The escort service number is 784-6808.

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

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 center of 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 why this is a great place to live.

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. Hopefully spring is on its way!

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.

Interesting Fact: A one-way trip on the Trans-Siberian Railway involves crossing 3,901 bridges.

Our Verkada system allows all of our residents to see who is at the front gate and unlock the gate so their friends, relatives, or package deliveries can safely enter the courtyard.

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. 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. 

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. 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. 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 $740 Value

Parking at the University of Nevada is expensive. Silver permit parking is really expensive. The annual fee to park in a reserved silver permit lot is $740. 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. Most of the new student apartments are now charging for both covered and uncovered parking. Not us!

Message from Phyllis

It is really nice to have you return “home” from the holidays and I hope that each of you had a great time with your families and friends. To repeat our wish for the New Year, I hope that all of you will help to keep the complex clean, quiet, and safe. It is our wish that everyone works together to make this a great place to live. It takes all of us to accomplish this task. Welcome home!

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.

2024/2025 School Year

Residents wishing to stay at the College Courtyard after their current lease expires must inform Phyllis by February 1, 2024.  If notice is not received by February 1st, 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. We thank you for choosing us as your home away from home.

Interesting Fact: The bumblebee bat is the world’s smallest mammal.

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 circulatory system is more than 60,000 miles long.

Minimum Temp

Per your lease, the minimum temperature in your apartment is 60 degrees. This ensures 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 parts of Africa in all four hemispheres.

No Tandem Parking at the College Courtyard

Some of our neighboring apartment complexes (to the east and north) 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.

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 center of the University of Nevada campus.

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 $540 per year at other apartment complexes or rental houses.  

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.

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.

Watch Your Step

During the winter months we make every effort to keep the sidewalks and stairs free of snow and ice. Nevertheless, 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.

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.
