It’s a great place to live—three blocks to Lake Tahoe, in a national forest, on an easily accessible campus.

Whether you live in a campus residence hall with a spacious room and private bath, or nearby in the village, you are part of a close, active, academic community. Should we mention the great food? And even better, there is always something going on here to support the classroom experience—film festivals, cultural events, lectures from visiting scholars, poetry slams, and talent nights to name a few. Local resorts host regular concerts and performances too. There are clubs for sustainability, golf, LGBT Pride, climbing, and you are welcome to start your own. Organized student activities include hikes, movie nights, beach outings, and trips to nearby attractions like San Francisco and Yosemite. Reno’s international airport, shopping, and nightlife are only 35 miles away.
