It is our goal at the Harrah College of Hospitality to immerse our students in the art, science, and business of hospitality. Students may take a “generalist” approach—emphasizing a cross-section of skills—or pursue a more specific concentration in Gaming Management, Meeting & Events Management, Restaurant Management, or PGA Golf Management (one of only 18 accredited university programs in the nation).
Above all, we at the college believe that partnering with industry is key to our students’ success. Each year the college organizes nearly 600 internships, welcomes more than 100 national hospitality brands for recruitment events, and pairs an average of 175 industry mentors with students. These crucial relationships help build careers.
Harrah College of Hospitality students study, collaborate, and train in the ultra-modern 93,500 square-foot Hospitality Hall, located in the center of the UNLV campus. Completed in spring 2018, Hospitality Hall showcases a number of unique amenities, including an executive kitchen, interactive classrooms, a student-run café, a Center for Professional Golf Management, and special event spaces with sweeping views of the famous Las Vegas Strip.
