We Are Student Affairs: The Heartbeat of Campus

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Resources

Resources are available for individuals affected by the rescission of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, including free assistance with completing renewal forms prior to the Oct. 5, 2017 deadline. Learn more at unlv.edu/daca.

The Division of Student Affairs is much more than the large and complex organization that manages everything from recruiting and enrolling students to helping them complete their studies through financial aid, counseling, campus involvement, graduation, and career assistance. Student Affairs – the heartbeat of the university – is the pulse that keeps everything circulating to give our students a rich array of experiences in addition to their formal education. 

Each unit in Student Affairs plays an important role in developing the different, daring, and diverse student body that has become UNLV’s most recognizable trait. We work hard every day to enhance learning, nurture student success, and foster a secure and inclusive community that is helping lift UNLV into the top tier of universities.

School Spirit

We may be young, but we are mighty, and we have established many traditions in our short history. Whether kicking off the school year with Premier UNLV, fighting for the right to paint the Fremont Cannon, or celebrating our diverse cultures, our Rebel pride shines through.
