Housing and Residential Life and the Tonopah Complex are excited to announce UNLV’s most “spooktacular” annual tradition: Boo Bash! 

Boo Bash gives local underprivileged children and their families a safe and fun place to Trick-or-Treat and enjoy Halloween-style festivities here in fabulous Las Vegas!  Each year, almost 1,000 area children and their families attend the event that features "haunted houses," carnival games, large inflatables, and plenty of candy!  UNLV’s oldest residential community is preparing to transform the Student Union Ballroom and open its doors for another great Boo Bash event!

We will be accepting new or gently used children's books to be donated to Spread The Word Nevada. Spread the Word Nevada℠ is a children’s lit­er­acy non­profit, ded­i­cated to advanc­ing early child­hood lit­er­acy by plac­ing books into the hands and homes of chil­dren within South­ern Nevada’s at-risk, low income com­mu­ni­ties.

Admission Information

This event is free and open to the public. Faculty, staff, and students are welcome to attend if they bring along a child to escort them!
