Services and facilities

Laundry

Located in each residence hall are card operated washers and dryers available for the convenient use of our residents. The cards operate much like prepaid cards with machines in each of the residence halls where you can add money to the cards to use on the laundry machines. 

Great Basin Hall features washers and dryers that accept mobile pay through the PayRange App.  For more information, visit the WASH Mobile Pay webpage

Internet access

All residence halls have been retrofitted with new high-density, high-speed wireless.  This internet access is a part of the campus system and available to each student at no additional cost. While this wireless internet is ideal for most college purposes, we recommend using your in-room wired ethernet connection for other high-bandwidth functions. 

All campus network usage policies apply and bandwidth may be restricted. Make sure to read the policies covering the use of the residence hall network and we encourage students to read and know these policies prior to connecting to the network. You can learn more about the residence hall network from the Office of Information Technology.

Internet access

Most of the major cellular service companies (e.g. AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile) provide service on-campus.  However, signal strength varies depending on cell tower location and building construction.  We recommend activating WiFi calling on your smartphone to enable sending and receiving calls over the campus wireless network when in buildings with poor signal strength.  For more details please visit the information page for each of the cellular providers listed below:

Mail and packages

The US Postal Service does not deliver to the Residence Halls. Located on campus is a United States Post Office where students may rent a post office box by contacting (775) 348-2090.

Deliveries by major carriers such as UPS, FedEx, OnTrac, and DHL may be sent to the Residence Halls. Please use the residence hall address listed below when sending packages. 

Packages will NOT be accepted until the official move-in day of the semester. Any packages received before this time will be returned to sender.

Changing bed height

The bed frames across campus are able to be raised and lowered (4 adjustable heights) or bunked. Students are permitted to rearrange their rooms how they like but at move-out, the room must be returned to what it looked like at move-in.

Raising and lowering bed frames

Students can raise or lower the bed frames in their room without tools. Raising and lowering bed needs no tools. The highest height for a single bed frame is called "Captain's Height" which will allow a dresser to slide underneath.

Bunking beds

Students can bunk the bed frames in their room also and no tools are needed.  In order to bunk the bed, the student will need to visit the front desk in their building to get 4 Bed Bunking Pins.  If students need assistance, a Work Request can be placed.   

Lofting beds

The only building where bed lofting is permitted is Peavine Hall and this is due to the building configuration and safety standards.  In order to have a bed lofted, students need to submit a Work Request (students are not allowed to loft beds on their own due to safety reasons). If a Work Request to loft a bed is placed during August Move-in, we ask students to be patient as our priority is the health, safety, and security of students and their families.  Our team will address the Work Request as soon as possible.
