    3. Seal the envelope and turn it in at the Front Desk

  4. Students who fail to comply with any of these check-out procedures will be assessed a $50 improper check-out fee, in addition to other charges for which the student is responsible. Additional fees may apply if students do not check out by 10 p.m. on Wednesday, May 12, 2021 and have not received written permission from their RD if staying until 11 a.m. the next day.

Security deposit

Your remaining security deposit will be refunded by Wednesday, July 1, 2021, after your successful completion of the 2020-2021 license agreement and minus any outstanding charges on your University account. You will not receive a refund if you transferred your security deposit to the 2021-2022 academic year or you have outstanding University charges above the amount of the security deposit. Please review, and update as needed, your MyNevada profile to ensure the mailing address is correct.

Students with extenuating circumstances

If you have extenuating circumstances and you need on-campus housing, the University wants you to know we will do everything we can to accommodate you. Please contact your Resident Director to explain your circumstances.

If approved, we may need you to relocate to a different housing assignment (yet to be determined).
