Campus housing at UNLV has its high and low points. The many buildings and special floors all have their own atmosphere as well as varying degrees of newness. While Tonopah is known for being one of the oldest and largest housing buildings, it is also conveniently located in the middle of campus and is always occupied by a spirited bunch of students, though that spirit can also translate to some late and loud nights. In comparison, the Dayton complex holds the newest campus dorms available; however, it’s on the very edge of the 337-acre campus.
Some high points of dorm living at UNLV are the variety of special floors offered and the convenience. With a wide range of choices, the special floors allow students a chance to surround themselves with others who share the same interests and majors. Even though the majority of UNLV students don’t live on campus, all admit to the benefits it offers. If you live on campus, you’re surrounded with the activities and clubs for students and are more likely to participate. And well, you can hit the snooze button a few more times and not be late to class.
