The Campus and Surrounding Area


The university is an integral part of the thriving Reno-Sparks metropolitan area. Its 255-acre campus of rolling hills features a blend of ivy-covered buildings, sweeping lawns and functional, progressive architecture. The academic atmosphere is filled with rich surroundings for the cultural and intellectual development of the student.

Beyond the university, the Reno-Sparks area lies prominently in an attractive natural setting. Bounded on the west by the majestic Sierra Nevada range and on the east by the rolling basin and range province, Reno-Sparks benefits from a comfortable climate. Marked by generally cool and dry weather, the area is a haven for those who love the four seasons.

Recreational activities are easy to find, as students can drive to the famed ski areas of Lake Tahoe and the historic Western realm of Virginia City all in one day.
