We have both garage and street parking available (your choice). The garage is gated. No stacked/tandem parking. Parking is Free!
The College Courtyard Apartments are one short block from the center of campus. No waiting for a shuttle (that never comes when you need it) or paying for expensive parking permits where the parking is still miles from your class.

Some of our neighboring apartment complexes (to the east and north - OK, College Terrace) have stacked/tandem parking. One car is parked in front of the other. Can you imagine needing to go somewhere and the owner of the car behind you is nowhere to be found? That won't happen at the College Courtyard. All of our residents have single garage or permit street parking. In the garage or on the street...it's the student's choice.

Security at the College Courtyard Apartments is a priority. All of our entrances are under 24 hour video surveillance. We've installed additional gates and barriers to make the complex even more secure. At night the College Courtyard Apartments are very well lit and there are no dark corners. We encourage our residents to monitor carefully who is buzzed into the courtyard. We are a friendly place to live with just 60 students. Unlike the 700 student party complexes on the far east side of the University, we offer a great environment for the serious student seeking a safe and secure place to live. Google some of the party apartment complexes in the area and see the police calls. Would you want your son or daughter living in that environment (at night?)? We don't think so.

The College Courtyard Apartments are the best for University of Nevada student living. Here's a few reasons why:
•We are on a quiet side street on the West side (the best side) of the University of Nevada. Seminary Avenue is quiet with little traffic (unlike very busy and noisy Sierra Street and Virginia Street).
•You don't need to worry or pay for shuttle service. The shuttles to some apartment complexes are expensive and only come infrequently.
•No stacked/tandem parking. Each resident of the College Courtyard has an assigned parking space or open street side parking (Your choice). Our neighboring apartment complex (College Terrace) has stacked parking - one car behind the other. Very inconvenient. Our parking is FREE! We guarantee all of our residents parking either on the street or in the parking garage.
•Each bedroom has a sink and vanity. No waiting for your roommate to get ready.
•We have very well insulated apartments with double pane windows. This keeps the power bill low both in the summer and the winter.
•We pride ourselves in keeping the building in great condition.
•We are locally owned and operated by University of Nevada graduates - not some faceless corporation or out of the area owner.
There's a reason the College Courtyard Apartments are always full. We have great students as residents. Google our competitors. One was ordered by the City of Reno to hire security guards as there were so many unruly parties. Ask to walk around the complex of our neighbors without being escorted. Sure the model rooms look good.....check out where you really will live. Some don't even shampoo the carpets before you move in. Yes, you get what you pay for. There is a reason we are considered the favorite off campus place for University of Nevada students. We offer the best value, location and amenities for the student dollar. THERE ARE NO HIDDEN FEES LIKE MOST OF THE STUDENT HOUSING COMPLEXES AROUND UNR. And we are nice people too. We appreciate our residents and want them to truly enjoy their college experience.

Good Luck on Your Final Exams
As the Spring Semester comes to an end, it is time to start focusing on final exams and papers. It is imperative that all of you do well on these undertakings. A quiet study atmosphere is necessary for everyone to do their very best. Please be considerate of the other residents of the College Courtyard and keep noise to a minimum so that everyone can concentrate and succeed.

Location, location, location. There is nothing like the location of the College Courtyard Apartments. We are a half block from the campus and yet we are on a quiet side street. While living at the College Courtyard you can actually get up five minutes before class and still make it on time. No worries about catching a shuttle or trying to find a parking space when you live at the College Courtyard. This is just one more reason this is a great place to live.
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. Our parking is the equivalent of Silver Permit parking and is a $540 value. With our students, instead of driving round and round looking for a parking space or waiting for a shuttle bus you can have another 20 minutes of precious sleep. 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.
Interesting Fact: A rat can last longer without water than a camel.
Interesting Fact: Peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite.
No Hover Boards
Until a safe hover board is manufactured, they are banned from the College Courtyard Apartments. These devices have proved to be dangerous——especially when being charged. Having a hover board in your apartment could lead to eviction.
Interesting Fact: In Tokyo, a bicycle is faster than a car for most trips of less than 50 minutes!
Need Storage For The Summer?
The College Courtyard has storage lockers available for rent for only $30 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 Phyllis for more information.
Free DSL/Wi-Fi is a $540 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 $540 per year at other apartment complexes or rental houses.

Interesting Fact: The average lead pencil will draw a line 35 miles long or write approximately 50,000 English words.

Wiegand Fitness Center
The Wiegand Fitness Center is a short walk from the College Courtyard Apartments. This $47 million facility is a great amenity for all University of Nevada students.
