Tour The Property
Every July, the owners and management of the College Courtyard Apartments do a complete tour of the property to see what may be needed to improve the apartments during our annual “Flip Week” in August. Of course, we will give you advance notice and we are in the apartments just long enough to determine what each unit may need to keep it a great place to live.

If you park on Seminary Street, remember to pick up your new street parking permit from the office. The permits issued last year expired on June 30, 2023. Permits will only be given to students who have signed a new lease. Students who park on the street and will be leaving in August will be given a spot in the garage. We don’t want to you get a ticket so please stop by the office and get your new permit.
Please be aware that the parking enforcement officers for the City of Reno 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 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.
Message from Phyllis
July rent is now due. If you are leaving us in August, pay only half of the July rent as we will apply your last month’s rent to the rest of the July and the first half of August. If you are staying with us, thank you, and pay the full amount as normal.

Parking is Free and Easy
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/ebike 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.

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.
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 an Uber but please do not get behind the wheel of a car while under the influence.

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.
Please be considerate of your neighbors and do not leave your clothes in the washers or dryers unattended after the washing and drying cycle
No Stacked Parking
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 parking.
Security is Important
Security at the College Courtyard Apartments is a priority. All of our entrances are under 24 hour video surveillance. 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.
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 new flashing lights at the crosswalk!
