Really nice campus

A very nice campus, it's a large chunk of land just north of the highway in Reno. Lots of buildings, housing and school buildings. The stadium is very nice

I was here for a two-day conference and found the campus to be very pretty and well laid-out. The union, which we were told is a new building, was quite nice and modern. Given the harsh summer weather, the effort that clearly goes into keeping the campus green and pretty is impressive. The quality of the classroom buildings was variable... More

Many new improvements to the university since I left especially in the technology and computer areas. New buildings. Great professors. Best time of my life spent there. Partners with the health care providers in the area. Innovative, and research work

I have a son who will be attending the school starting this August, so we drove up from Vegas for a tour of the campus. We had never been to Reno, so that in itself was a first for us.

This campus is full of beauty and history. There is so much to see and do. If you are here for a sporting event then you should take a side trip to some of the buildings to enjoy the architecture.

My son chose UNR over Davis, Santa Cruz, Redlands, Santa Barbara, Irvine and Berkeley. I'm so very glad he did! He graduated in Engineering in four years, immediately got a great job and his tuition was affordable on my nurse salary so no college debt. He was very happy at UNR!

Typical parking for college campus, interesting old and new buildings, master plan for campus must have been thrown away or lost years ago, hog page of buildings here and there, future planning for buildings not great, sports areas integrated into the mess, very popular university with local kids who can gamble in the casinos close by, the sheep on the...

Beautiful campus, we were there for our granddaughter's graduation and I was impressed with the beauty and cleanliness of the campus. Also a well organized ceremony, and friendly helpers 😀🎓

We ran into some softball players at the GSR and they told us they were in town and playing against UNR that afternoon. We drove over to the University and loved the field and the game. Great campus.
