Emergency housing after the Argenta Hall explosion: Ongoing updates

In response to the explosion that occurred Friday, July 5 that 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.

A list of frequently asked questions about the event can be found on Nevada Today. Check back for regular updates.
