Las Vegas is one of the most visited places in the world, and the UNLV campus is minutes away from the excitement and opportunities the Strip has to offer. Our world-class resorts and outdoor recreational areas provide adventure, enrichment, and unique learning opportunities.

From the President

"Shout out to UNLV students Linjie Ying and Raul Montez for winning the inaugural design contest for Sphere Vegas! It's wonderful to see them showcase their creativity and receive an amazing $10K scholarship to fuel their passions here at UNLV."

Rebels Make it Happen

Here’s the first thing to know about Rebels: You can’t define us. There is no “average” Rebel. One third of our students are the first in their families to go to college. Tagalog is one of the most-spoken second languages among our students. Military Times lists us as one of its Best for Vets. All that ripples throughout our campus. It creates a climate where you can both find your people and expand your worldview.

Citlally Lopez Quote

"As a first-generation college student, it was really hard to know where to begin. Luckily, the UNLV Outreach program for prospective students really cemented the fact that UNLV was the best choice for me. The diversity and resources at UNLV makes students from different cultures feel welcome."

A Worldwide Destination

Dripping in the golden desert sun and spread across 350 acres in the heart of Las Vegas, UNLV provides nowhere-else opportunities in this 24-hour metropolis. And while Las Vegas might be the center of it all, it doesn’t take long to slip the bonds of this little oasis and get out into the desert, as we are just minutes from natural getaways and less than a day’s drive from the entire American Southwest.
