The Reno City Council approved the Social Host ordinance 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
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. Reno
Interesting Fact: The only letters that don’t appear on the periodic table are J & Q.
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: The scientific term for brain freeze is “sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia”.
Message from Phyllis
I hope that all of you have had a wonderful summer. As the new school year is just weeks away, we are preparing for our annual influx of new students. For those of you who will be leaving us, please break down any boxes you put into the dumpster. We have arranged for daily pickup during the move-out and move-in period but the dumpster still fills up fast if boxes are not broken down. As always, it gets hectic around here during flip-week but our goal is to get the entire complex up to perfect so that the new students have a great new home.
Safety is Important
The safety of our residents is of the highest priority. The
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. We also ask that when ever possible you walk
in groups and never alone at night. The escort service number is 784-6808.
Please be considerate of your neighbors and do not leave your clothes in the washers or dryers unattended after the washing and drying cycle.
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.
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.
Please be aware that the parking enforcement officers for the City of
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 Reno 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.
Interesting Fact: There is actually a difference between coffins and caskets – coffins are typically tapered and six-sided, while caskets are rectangular.
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.
Interesting Fact: 75% of the world’s diet is produced from just 12 plant and five different animal species.
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, Waste Management writes down the license plate number of cars that block the dumpster and violators may have to pay for additional garbage pickups.
Interesting Fact: Violin bows are commonly made from horse hair.
Interesting Fact: A single strand of Spaghetti is called a “Spaghetto”.
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.

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 pleased the City has added flashing lights at the crosswalk.
Interesting Fact: Dalmatian puppies are born completely white. Their spots appear a few weeks later.
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.
