Location, Location, Location

Our campus is located less than 1 hour from world class skiing and hiking at Lake Tahoe. Student activities such as: skiing/snowboarding, hiking, water skiing/wakeboarding, fishing, hunting, clubbing, and a variety of other activities. Reno also offers several annual events which include Hot August Nights, Reno National Championship Air Races, Street Vibrations, Farmers Market, The Great Reno Balloon Races, Rib Cook Off, Italian Festival, and Reno Rodeo. Being a part of the University of Nevada, Reno is being apart of a life-changing adventure. Because of our luxurious destination nestled in the heart of the city of Reno and tucked away just under the Sierra’s, it’s no wonder our student ratio has increased (fact - # of students attending compared to years past). And with the over 100 clubs offered at the University, it allows students to meet new friends and make unforgettable experiences.

The University as a whole is very diverse and full of life. Students are constantly making new friends, embarking on new adventures, and developing long lasting relationships.

Attending a Wolf Pack game is a must-do and something you’ll want to do again and again. Dressing in blue and silver and cheering with the crazed Nevada, Reno fans is an affair students rarely miss.

Summer barbeques and movies on the quad are two of the most popular events the student body organization hosts. Enjoying popcorn and candy while watching a new release with colleagues on a warm summer evening is just the ticket for that much needed break between studies.

Students at the University of Nevada, Reno don’t just enjoy their experience attending this diversified campus, they rejoice the occasions. The numerous social events to partake in while attending classes will create lasting memories to be possessed for a lifetime.
