3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2014

New building and developments have improved the look and feel of the campus. The football venue is fine but for the number of east side seats packed in. Only a section full of 12 year olds could sit comfortably on the east side.

Well worth looking/touring the campus, simply beautiful. From the Quad to the Knowledge Center everything is worth viewing.

With right at 20,000 students, UNR is not only "THE University" in Nevada (older and larger than UNLV), but it's one of the few state universities considered a "tier one" school. With a major commitment to research and a reducing student-faculty ratio, the university promises to increase its "creme de la creme" ranking. The personal interest that faculty and administration...

We traveled primarily for a college football game. While we were the losing side, the UV Reno fans were quite rude and borderline abusive. Our fans were really not much better and even offended the recent grads with us.

My son just moved into the dorms and is a freshman at the university. It is a beautiful campus and I'm so excited for him as he begins this next phase in his life. I'm impressed by the staff during move-in and I loved their Opening Ceremony.

If you are considering attending, then please consider that there's more to UNR than the pleasantly manicured exterior. I was a student here for two years before I finally decided it wasn't worth the aggravation and transferred. Why, you may ask? I was at the top of my class. The teachers were qualified and competent (with one or two exceptions).... More

Everybody was very friendly and opened doors for us. The permanent art gallery collection is worth a close look. The Kegg mineralogy museum is fantastic.

We have enjoyed visiting the University of Nevada at Reno Campus. We have gone to their football stadium there to watch a football game - actually we were lucky enough that time to see Colin Kapernick play. He was stellar that day; he is now the quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. Nice stadium. Most recently (July 2014) we visited... More

This school has it all and then some. Lots of construction going on, the place is really growing. Student art is all over the campus, which suggests a strong, integrated art department. Lots of history too. The school has all the latest & greatest, including 2 3D printers (which i had never seen until now). Perfectly located for access to... More
