Emergency housing after the Argenta Hall explosion: Ongoing updates

In response to the explosion that occurred Friday, July 5 and damaged Argenta and Nye Halls, we are relocating summer housing to Peavine Hall until further notice. Any Argenta Hall summer residents can report to Peavine Hall. Housing assignments for Fall 2019 are delayed at this time. Student Services is continuing to work diligently on getting these assignments completed as soon as possible.

The University came to an agreement with CCR Newco, LLC, a subsidiary of Eldorado Resorts, to secure the 1,300 student beds needed after the July 5 explosion, which left Argenta and Nye Halls uninhabitable. University Residential Life and Housing will occupy the newly-renovated, non-gaming West Tower ("Sky Tower") of Circus Circus Reno, ensuring an academic and community environment that promotes student success. Learn more about the agreement.
