A real surprise -- what a campus!

A great place to tour and visit. Very impressive. Seems more like an Ivy League school than in Reno,Nevada.

I am a proud UNR graduate (class of 98), so I recommend this university to everyone. The campus is small enough that you don't get lost in it, and you can get from one end to the other fairly quickly. They have added many new buildings in the years since I went there, and they were very nice upgrades to... More

This is a nice new campus. The parking folks were kind to forgive sparking ticket in a poorly signed area. That was nice and unusual for a university.

We had a free hour, so wanted to see the campus. Did not live up to our expectations. The Quad (original buildings)is cool, but much of the rest of the "core" had so much construction going on, that it was a mess to walk around. Poor signage, unclear parking in the garage (it says "Public Parking" from Virginia Ave, but... More

I am very impressed by UNR campus, especially the old part with its beautiful historic buildings. They are nested in a lovely green park. Nice place to visit.

I have traveled to the Reno/Tahoe for last several years. My son received great education and his professors were outstanding. At his masters with honors I brought my 90 year old dad w a wheelchair and everyone very nice. We just had his highest level at the doctorate program. Both graduations outstanding. Education-the best.

It`s set on top of a hilly area with nicer some older some newer homes in a well Kept neighborhood which is Not exactly easy to find in Reno in my honest... More

This campus surprised and impressed the hell out of me. It is SO much nicer, cleaner, larger, and better than the better known UNLV. The campus is full of beautifully finished brick buildings, has great greenery surrounding the buildings, and it is very clean and easy to walk around. Definitely worth a quick walk thru if nothing else, you might... More

Beautiful, growing campus with many new beautiful buildings to blend with the old ones! Always enjoy walking the campus and the Student Union has great food choices. The new library is beautiful too!
