College Courtyard Apartments - May 2022 Newsletter


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 this is a great place to live.

 Message from Phyllis

We will be doing some upgrades to the property in the next few months. First, we are ripping out the asphalt at the handicapped parking and by the dumpster. We are replacing it with reinforced concrete. This will give the parking lot a clean new look and it will better handle the heavy garbage trucks. We are replacing the intercom/gate system with new and more modern equipment in June (Hopefully). Every student will have an app that allows them to open the gate with their smart phone. Delivery companies such as Prime, UPS and FedEx will have delivery codes so they can open the gate. A camera will monitor every person who comes through the gate and save it to the cloud.

 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. 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.

Interesting Fact: A mix between a Chihuahua and a dachshund is called a "chiweenie."

Laundry Rooms

Please be considerate of your neighbors and do not leave your clothes in the washers or dryers unattended after the washing and drying cycle.

 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.

Interesting Fact: Gummy bears were originally called "dancing bears."

Interesting Fact: Bart Simpson's name is an anagram of BRAT. His full name is Bartholomew Jojo Simpson.

Interesting Fact: An oak tree produces about 10 million acorns during its lifetime

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.

 No Smoking

The College Courtyard Apartments are non-smoking student residences. Smoking is prohibited in the apartments, on the walkways, balconies and the courtyard.

More Interesting Facts: The "O" before an Irish name, such as "O'Reilly," means "descendant of."

Interesting Fact: The closest relative to bears are seals.


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 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 group of goldfish is called a "troubling.".

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.

More Interesting Facts: A snail's mouth is no larger than the head of a pin, but it can have over 25,000 teeth.

Enjoy the Courtyard

We will be putting the tables and umbrellas out later this month. We want you to still be diligent about social distancing as long as the COVID-19 pandemic is an issue. No parties are allowed.

 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.
