Your Free Parking Is a $375 Value
Parking at the University of Nevada is expensive. Silver permit parking is real expensive. The annual fee to park in a silver permit lot is $375. 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.
If you park on Seminary Street, remember to pick up your new street parking permit from the office. The permits issued at the beginning of the fall semester expired on December 31, 2009. We don’t want to you get a ticket so please stop by the office and get your new permit.
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.
Useless Fact: China is the world's oldest known continuous civilization.
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.
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.
Useless Fact: There have been close to 200 coups and counter-coups in the country of Bolivia.
Need More Storage Space?
The College Courtyard has storage lockers available for rent for only $25 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 Rebecca for more information.
Useless Fact: Celtic warriors sometimes fought their battles naked, their bodies dyed blue from head to toe.
Free DSL is a $360 Value
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 $360 per year at other apartment complexes or rental houses.

2010/2011 School Year
Residents wishing to stay at the College Courtyard after their current lease expires must inform Rebecca by March 1, 2010. If notice is not received by March 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. Please note, we will not be raising rent for students who re-sign leases before March 31, 2010.

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.
