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!

Details about Residence Hall Move-in will be shared by email with students living on-campus after August 1st.  We anticipate move-in occurring from Tuesday, August 18 through Saturday, August 22 where students will receive designated check-in time frames to maximize social distancing. With the nature of this pandemic impacting all facets of our lives, we are asking for your patience and flexibility as we continue to center students' health and safety (and that of their parents/families) in the move-in process.


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

Vaccination requirements

If you are a freshman and under the age of 23, you are required to submit proof of Meningitis vaccination by visiting the Immunizations page on the University's website. If you received your vaccination prior to August 31, 2016, you will need an updated vaccination prior to move-in.


Room and Board charges will be reflected on your MyNevada account within 10 business days of being assigned, along with tuition and fees.

Room changes

If for some reason you desire a room change, you may complete a Room Change Request Form after August 20, 2020, 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.

You may change your meal plans once from August 20, 2020, through 5 p.m., September 11, 2020, by completing the meal plan change form on your housing portal.
