About RSS

UNLV is now offering a university news RSS feed to keep you up-to-date on all the latest happenings on campus. In addition to university news, many departments and programs on campus are offering subscriptions to their own feeds.

What is an RSS feed?
An RSS feed is a free, automatic way for you to receive news, events, and announcements collected from many different websites, all bundled together for your convenience.
What are the tools needed to use an RSS feed?
In order to subscribe and read the collected RSS feeds, you will need an application that can read and display them, such as a browser, portal, or news reader/aggregator, which automatically grabs the desired feeds for you as they are available. Most applications are available as either downloadable software or web-based readers and most are free. Users should review and select software that best fits their system and preferences, however a few suggested news readers can be selected from the list of RSS feeds above.
Why is RSS useful?
Subscribing to an RSS feed saves you time. The headlines and links are delivered straight to you so you don't have to search for them. Because RSS feeds usually contain a headline or brief summary and link, it is also quick to download. Also, the feeds are tailored just for you, so you don't have to wade through a bunch of articles that you have no interest in.
What are the terms of use for UNLV's RSS feed?
UNLV offers RSS as a free service to any individual user or non-profit organization that would like to access it for non-commercial use. By accessing our RSS service you are indicating your understanding and agreement that you will not use UNLV's RSS for commercial purposes. UNLV requests that your use of our RSS service be accompanied by proper attribution to UNLV as the source.
