Students arriving prior to August 17, 2019 can find lodging information through the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority.

Students who want to live on campus during the 2019 - 2020 academic year, should apply for housing by February 1, 2019.

Students are welcome to bring additional food, snacks and drinks during NevadaFIT camps.

NevadaFIT parking

The University's Parking Services department enforces parking regulations year round. In order to park on campus in designated parking zones, you must have a parking permit. Please adhere to all Parking Rules and Regulations during NevadaFIT.

NevadaFIT participants who have purchased a year-long parking permit should receive their parking permit from Parking Services prior to attending NevadaFIT. Parking permits should be visible from the rearview mirror or dashboard at all times to avoid parking citations. Students may use their year-long parking permit to park in the designated NevadaFIT parking zone during the week of NevadaFIT, even if it does not match the zone on their permit for this week only.


Students who do not have a parking permit may use the NevadaFIT parking pass for this week only, or use Campus Escort during the program.

Parking passes are valid between August 16 and August 22, 2019 in the West Stadium parking garage, on levels 4, 5 and 6. The parking pass is not valid at meters and must be displayed visibly on the car's dashboard.

NevadaFIT travel information

NevadaFit participants need to arrange their own transportation from the Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) to the University campus.

Driving Directions
The University campus is located near the junction of I-80 and I-580/U.S. 395. Those traveling by car are urged to check Nevada Department of Transportation Road Conditions for information related to road construction and closures.
