University of Nevada, Las Vegas Off Campus Apartments
Ready for an Apartment near UNLV?
There are over 28,000 'Rebels' at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, and 93% of undergraduates live in off campus housing. So, when you start the search for your UNLV apartment understand that you'll have many choices. Living within walking distance of classes is optimal because parking is scarce. There are shuttle buses that run from outlying parking areas, but being able to bike or walk to campus is a big bonus.
UNLV has a strong history in academic and in sports and the lure of living and studying in such a tourist oriented city is great. There's always The Strip for dining and clubbing but Las Vegas is also a town where people live and the neighborhoods around the campus are geared toward students. Within a half mile of campus, you'll find any number of chain places that offer good food and value. Some of the favorites are Chipotle, Capriottis, Firefly for tapas and Kung Fu for Thai. Mazatlan is a favorite sports bar but it has great food too. The Beach is where most people head first for a night out clubbing. Even people who don't like clubs go there! ICE is for techno lovers and is very close to campus so check it out. The Freaky Frog is also near campus and serves 600 types of beer and is known as a student gathering place. There's always The Strip if you're over 21 - besides, the shopping there is excellent!
