Message from Nicholas

The College Courtyard Apartments are gated for your protection. Some of you appear to be our “gatekeeper” as you continually open the gate for anyone and everyone. This is dangerous and a violation of your lease. By opening the gate to strangers you are accepting liability for any damage or injury that occurs on the property or to our residents. Guests can “buzz” for entrance and only the resident should make the decision as to whether they want that person to enter the complex. There is always the chance that the resident is not home and then we have strangers roaming about the building. Please do not open the gate for strangers and do not let strangers enter through the gate as you enter or exit the building.

New Computers

We have new computers in the computer lab. Residents using the computer lab during evenings or weekends need to sign-in before using the computers. These computers are for our residents only and we want to ensure that our residents have access to the computers when desired

Parking is Free And Easy

As many of you know, 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. That’s a real bonus and another benefit of living at the College Courtyard.

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.

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.

Useless Fact: Pebbles cereal was actually named after the shape of the cereal and not the Pebbles Flintstone character.

Snacks Available

As you prepare for that final exam does the grumble of your stomach keep you from concentrating? A quick snack can help you quell those hunger pangs. Snack and drink machines are available in the first floor laundry room. It’s quick, easy and convenient.

Useless Fact: In 1930, Ellen Church became the world's first airline stewardess.

Need Storage For The Summer?

The College Courtyard has storage lockers available for rent for only $20 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 Nicholas for more information.

More Useless Facts: In 1969, the first Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers restaurant opened in downtown Columbus, Ohio.

No Smoking

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.

More Useless Facts: The Great Wall stretches for about 4,500 miles across North China.


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.

Useless Fact: In 1890, Pepsi-Cola was invented by Caleb Bradham and was originally called "Brad's Drink."

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.

Useless Fact: Buckingham Palace has over six hundred rooms.
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.

Summer Residents

Please be advised that if you sublet your apartment during the summer you must have prior approval
from management.
