The Wiegand Fitness Center is a short walk from the College Courtyard Apartments.

The E.L. Weigand Fitness Center is a vibrant hub of the campus fitness and recreation, offering a gymnasium with three courts for intramural basketball and other court sports, areas for weight lifting, cardio training, and a multitude of fitness classes and activities. Additionally, it has an indoor, 1/8thmile track and stadium stairs for training. Finally, there are lockers and changing rooms and administrative office spaces. The E.L. Weigand Fitness Center is available to all students, faculty and staff. 

We have both garage and street parking available. The garage is gated. No stacked/tandem parking. Parking is Free!


The College Courtyard Apartments are one short block from the center of campus. No waiting for a shuttle (that never comes when you need it) or paying for expensive parking permits where the parking is still miles from your class.

No Stacked/Tandem Parking at the College Courtyard Apartments. It's FREE!

Some of our neighboring apartment complexes (to the east and north - OK, College Terrace) 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 at the College Courtyard Apartments.



Security at the College Courtyard Apartments is a priority. All of our entrances are under 24 hour video surveillance. We've 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. We are a friendly place to live with just 60 students. Unlike the 700 student party complexes on the far east side of the University, we offer a great environment for the serious student seeking a safe and secure place to live. Google some of the party apartment complexes in the area and see the police calls. Would you want your son or daughter living in that environment (at night?)? We don't think so.

Why the College Courtyard Apartments are a better choice.


The College Courtyard Apartments are the best for University of Nevada student living. Here's a few reasons why: 

•We are on a quiet side street on the West side (the best side) of the University of Nevada. Seminary Avenue is quiet with little traffic (unlike very busy and noisy Sierra Street and Virginia Street). 

•You don't need to worry or pay for shuttle service. The shuttles to some apartment complexes are expensive and only come infrequently.

•No stacked/tandem parking. Each resident of the College Courtyard has an assigned parking space or open street side parking. Our neighboring apartment complex (College Terrace) has stacked parking - one car behind the other. Very inconvenient. Our parking is FREE! 

•Each bedroom has a sink and vanity. No waiting for your roommate to get ready.

•Free DSL/WiFi.

•We have very well insulated apartments with double pane windows. This keeps the power bill low both in the summer and the winter. 

•We pride ourselves in keeping the building in great condition. 

•We are locally owned and operated by University of Nevada graduates - not some faceless corporation or out of the area owner.

There's a reason the College Courtyard Apartments are always full. We have great students as residents. Google our competitors. One was ordered by the City of Reno to hire security guards as there were so many unruly parties. Ask to walk around the complex of our neighbors without being escorted. Sure the model rooms look good.....check out where you really will live. Some don't even shampoo the carpets before you move in. Yes, you get what you pay for. There is a reason we are considered the favorite off campus place for University of Nevada students. We offer the best value, location and amenities for the student dollar. THERE ARE NO HIDDEN FEES LIKE MOST OF THE STUDENT HOUSING COMPLEXES AROUND UNR. And we are nice people too. We appreciate our residents and want them to truly enjoy their college experience.

 Your Free Parking Is a $740 Value

Parking at the University of Nevada is expensive. Silver permit parking is really expensive. The annual fee to park in a reserved silver permit lot is $740. The parking lot at the southwest corner of Sierra and 11th is silver permit parking. Right across the street is the College Courtyard Apartments. Our residents enjoy the value of silver permit parking for free. Go to unr.edu and find the parking permit and fee map to compare. Most of the new student apartments are now charging for both covered and uncovered parking. Not us!

Message from Phyllis

It is really nice to have you return “home” from the holidays and I hope that each of you had a great time with your families and friends. To repeat our wish for the New Year, I hope that all of you will help to keep the complex clean, quiet, and safe. It is our wish that everyone works together to make this a great place to live. It takes all of us to accomplish this task. Welcome home!

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.

Interesting Fact: The bird on the Twitter logo is named "Larry." He was named after the basketball player Larry Bird, who played for the Boston Celtics.

2024/2025 School Year

Residents wishing to stay at the College Courtyard after their current lease expires must inform Phyllis by February 1, 2024.  If notice is not received by February 1st, we will assume that you intend to vacate your apartment when your lease expires and we will begin the process of leasing it to new students. We thank you for choosing us as your home away from home.

Interesting Fact: The bumblebee bat is the world’s smallest mammal.

Laundry Rooms Don’t Like Cold Weather

During the cold winter months, it is important that the windows in the laundry rooms remain closed. Open windows may cause the pipes to freeze and cause considerable damage. This will force us to close the laundry rooms until they are repaired. None of us want that to happen so please be careful.

Interesting Fact: The circulatory system is more than 60,000 miles long.

Minimum Temp

Per your lease, the minimum temperature in your apartment is 60 degrees. This ensures that the pipes do not freeze in extreme cold weather. You will be liable for damage if this temperature minimum is not maintained.

Interesting Fact: There are parts of Africa in all four hemispheres.

No Tandem Parking at the College Courtyard

Some of our neighboring apartment complexes (to the east 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.

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.

Interesting Fact: The Philippines consists of 7,641 islands.

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

Please Don’t Drink and Drive

Your safety is important to us. Please don’t drink and drive. If you drink alcohol (please be 21 years of age and older) get a designated driver or walk home. Don’t ruin your life with a DUI or worse, death of yourself or others. It’s not worth it.

Vacuum

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.

Watch Your Step

During the winter months we make every effort to keep the sidewalks and stairs free of snow and ice. Nevertheless, 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.

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.
