Message from Phyllis

 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. 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.

 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 $570 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.

 Sleep In, We’re a 5 Minute Walk to Class 

The location of the College Courtyard Apartments is the best for students. We are on a quiet side street, just one block west of the center of the University of Nevada campus.

Need More Storage Space?

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.

 Interesting Fact: Japan is the world's most earthquake-prone country.

 Free 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/Wi-Fi to every bedroom. That free DSL/Wi-Fi would cost you $540 per year at other apartment complexes or rental houses. 

 The College Courtyard Is Nevada’s Best Off Campus Location 

Location, location, location. There is nothing like the location of the College Courtyard Apartments. We are a half block from the center of 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 why this is a great place to live. 


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.

Interesting Fact: The coldest temperature ever recorded was -144 degrees Fahrenheit.

 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. Hopefully spring is on its way!

 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: There are only three countries in the world that don't use the metric system: Liberia, Myanmar, and the United States.
