Parking is Free and
As many of you have heard,
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. With our students, instead of driving round and round
looking for a parking space you can have another 20 minutes of precious sleep.
That’s a real bonus and another benefit of living at the College Courtyard.
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 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.

or dryers unattended after the washing and drying cycle
Some of our neighboring apartment
complexes (to the west and north) 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
Security is Important
Security at the College Courtyard
Apartments is a priority. All of our entrances are under 24 hour video
surveillance. Recently we 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.
