Be a Good Neighbor
The goal of all of the residents of the College Courtyard
Apartments is to achieve a quality education at the University of Nevada. An
atmosphere that is conducive for studying is imperative. Please be considerate
of your roommates and neighbors and keep noise to a minimum. We will not
tolerate loud or large parties on the Courtyard or in the apartments and will
take appropriate action against those residents who violate the noise rules.
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 be considerate of
your neighbors and do not leave your clothes in the washers or dryers
unattended after the washing and drying cycle.
The Courtyard is a great place
to catch some rays or relax. Please remember to lower the umbrellas after use
and keep the area clean. We will keep the patio furniture on the courtyard
until the end of the month.
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.
Fact: Before the invention of color TV, 75% of people said
they dreamed in black and white. Today, only 12% do.
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.
Fact: There are actually more public libraries in the US than McDonald’s.

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. This includes marijuana! Legal or not, no
smoking means no smoking.
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. 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.
As the seasons begin to
change a sudden winter storm is always a possibility. Please be careful and
watch your step if a snowstorm should occur. We shovel snow and sand the
sidewalks and steps after every storm but you should be cautious never the
less. The sidewalk on the north side of the building gets little sun in the
winter and the steep hill can be treacherous. Please be careful.
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 Phyllis. If your license number is not on file in the office your car
may be booted.
