Wolfpack Fridays

Fridays have been proclaimed “Wolfpack Fridays” in the Biggest Little City! University of Nevada, established in 1874, is Nevada’s oldest college and provides a diverse student body and academic programs that contribute to a vibrant cultural scene, with art, music, theater, and sporting events. Make sure to wear silver and blue on Nevada Wolf Pack Fridays to celebrate!

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: Termites chew through wood twice as quickly when they are exposed to rock music.

Be a Good Neighbor

The goal of all of the residents of the College Courtyard Apartments is to achieve a quality education at the University of Nevada. An atmosphere that is conducive for studying is imperative. Please be considerate of your roommates and neighbors and keep noise to a minimum. We will not tolerate loud parties on the Courtyard or in the apartments and will take appropriate action against those residents who violate the noise rules.

Reserved Parking

Only residents may park in the garage and only in their assigned spaces. Cars that are parked in spaces not assigned to them will be booted and there is an $80 fee to remove the boot. If someone is in your assigned parking space call 691-8290 and a boot will be placed on the car. 

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 to the crosswalk.


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: A grasshopper's ears are found not on its head, but rather, on its belly.

For Your Safety

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.

Please Don’t Drink and Drive

We want to remind all of our students not to drink and drive. Don’t ruin your life with a DUI or worse a fatal car accident by drinking and driving. Call a cab, get a designated driver who will not drink or walk home. The life you may be saving could be your own.

City of Reno Party Ordinance

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 Reno 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.

Gate/Intercom System

Our Verkada gate/intercom system is a great way to monitor who is coming at going at the College Courtyard. Every student has an app that allows them to open the gate with their smart phone. Delivery companies such as Prime, UPS and FedEx have delivery codes so they can open the gate. A camera monitors every person who comes through the gate and saves it to the cloud.
