We are so glad you have decided to live in campus housing at the University of Nevada Reno! Living in campus housing can have a great impact on your academic success and personal growth. Not only is campus housing comfortable and convenient, but it also offers students ample opportunities to make new friends and be involved in floor, hall, and campus-wide activities. Best of all, living in campus housing is fun!
Your roommate information can be found online by logging in to your Housing Portal.Our software will allow you to view the name(s) and email address(es) of your roommate(s). Please email them to exchange contact information. We highly encourage you to talk over the phone with each other as you begin to connect and make plans for setting up your room
If you are a freshman and under the age of 23, you are required to submit proof of Meningitis vaccination. If you received your vaccination prior to August 31, 2015, you will need an updated vaccination prior to move-in.

Before arriving to campus, all residents must complete the Opening Day form. The link to the Opening Day form is listed in the assignment letter emailed to you. This form allows residents to sign up for a check-in time slot.
Please Note: Students must arrive during their selected time to check into their residence hall. We do not allow parents, friends, etc. to check in for you. The residence halls open Thursday, August 22, 2019, and you must reserve a check-in time on the form if arriving before 5pm that day. Students participating in Nevada FIT should complete the online forms and reserve a check-in time for Saturday, August 17, 2019. Available check-in times are limited so reserve yours as soon as possible. Students participating in other university-sponsored programs (e.g. Marching Band) should complete the online forms and contact their program for move-in information. It is important to remember that you must notify the Residential Life, Housing, and Food Service office in writing if you will be arriving later than 5 p.m., Monday, August 26, 2019, or your housing assignment may be released to another student.
If for some reason you desire a room change, you may complete a Room Change Request Form after August 22, 2019, by logging into your housing portal. We will accept Room Change requests for the first two weeks of the fall semester. Requests are accommodated as spaces become available.
Since the University's main dining facility was also damaged by the July 5 explosion, in August the University will be introducing a mobile kitchen and temporary residential dining facility for all students with a meal plan. In addition, the Overlook Café will remain as an all-you-care to-eat dining facility. Later in the fall, the University will open a semi-permanent dining facility over the lawn between Thompson Hall and the Jot Travis Building. Meal plans begin with dinner on August 22, 2019. You may change your meal plans once from August 22, 2019, through 5 p.m., September 13, 2019, by completing the meal plan change form on your housing portal. Changes after September 13th are for meal plan increases only. To learn more about the Meal Trade program, please visit our New Features webpage.
We look forward to your arrival! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Residential Life, Housing, and Food Service office at 775-784-1113.
