Two students in a dorm


When students make the campus their home, they'll make the most of their college experience.

Benefits of Living on Campus

When students live on campus, they:

  • Take advantage of great programs to help them do and be their best at UNLV.
  • Live independently in a supportive environment.
  • Get involved in campus organizations and events.
  • Spend more time doing the things they want and need to, like studying and spending time with friends, instead of commuting through Las Vegas traffic.
  • Share the university experience with other students from different cultures.
  • Participate in fun activities just for campus residents.
  • Never have to worry about grocery shopping, cooking, or doing the dishes.
  • Choose a living environment that meets their needs.
  • Eat great food at just about any time of day at multiple campus locations.

Housing and Residential Life facilitates a comfortable residential community through which accommodations, activities, and experiences encourage students to progress toward becoming self-directed individuals.
