If you park on Seminary Street, remember to pick up your new street parking permit from the office. .

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.

We have a few apartments still available for the 2009/2010 University of Nevada school year. If you have any friends who may be looking for an apartment we are a great choice. With the price of gas now days, it’s great not to have to drive to school. Parking is also a plus as it is free and easy. Compared to the dorms we are a great value and we offer amenities that can’t be beat.
Please be aware that the parking enforcement officers for the City of Reno will ticket cars that are parked in our loading zone for long periods of time. This ticketing will be done regardless of whether or not the car has a Seminary Avenue parking permit. This strict parking enforcement is being done at the request of the Postal Carriers, as they do not like restricted access to the building. All residents of the College Courtyard Apartments should appreciate this enforcement as it allows a convenient loading and unloading area for you, family and friends.
