Meet Jamie Tully

The College Courtyard Apartments is pleased to announce that Jamie Tully has become our new office manager. Jamie looks forward to meeting all of the students who live at the College Courtyard and is here to make sure that we are your home away from home. Jamie intends to carry out the owners dictate that we are the best student housing complex at the University of Nevada, Reno. Jamie says, “The office door is always open so feel free to visit me if you have a problem or need assistance.” Office hours are 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday. The office phone number is 786-1150.

Win a Ride in a Hot Air Balloon

All residents of the College Courtyard Apartments may enter our drawing for a free ride in a balloon during the Great Reno Balloon Race. Get your entry from Jamie. The drawing will be held September 5th at noon. The ride will be on Thursday September 6th at 6:30am. Even if you don’t win, don’t forget to attend this year’s race. If you have never seen the Dawn Patrol it is worth getting up early to see.

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.

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 working with the City of Reno and we hope that a traffic light can be installed in the future.
Useless Fact: Crayola is a French word that means "Oily chalk."

Need More Storage Space?

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 Jamie

Useless Fact: Former U.S. President William Taft converted the White House stable into a four car garage in 1909.

City of Reno Party Ordinance

The Reno City Council approved the Social Host ordinance on June 27, 2007 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.


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.


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.

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. It is your responsibility if you change cars or have a different license plate number to inform Scott. If your license number is not on file in the office your car may be booted.

Useless Fact: One-third pound stalk of broccoli contains more vitamin C than 204 apples.

Laundry Rooms

The laundry rooms are located on the first and second floors near the north stairwells. A snack and soda machine is available in the first floor laundry room. Please be considerate of your neighbors and do not leave your clothes in the washers or dryers unattended after the washing and drying cycle.

Useless fact: If someone was to fly once around the surface of the moon, it would be equal to a round trip from New York to London.

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.

Useless Fact: The original name for the soft drink Pepsi was "Brad's Drink."
