About the University
What began as a single building – Morrill Hall – the University of Nevada Reno's campus now covers 290 lush acres with 180 buildings, 60 research facilities, 12 museums and galleries and 11 schools and colleges. During the past decade, we've added more than half a billion dollars in new, state-of-the-art facilities – and there's more to come.
Channeling the crystal waters of Lake Tahoe, the Truckee River runs leisurely through downtown Reno. Numerous mountain ranges rise ruggedly from the desert basin, providing stunning views and unmatched sunsets. When you breathe the crisp mountain air and smell the hint of sagebrush on the breeze, you'll know you're in Reno.
Discover everything the region has to offer and maybe a bit more. We think you'll come to find the Reno-Tahoe region is a place you'll want to call home.
