"Someone told me that at UNLV you don't have to worry about fitting in because everyone stands out! I love that I can be myself while being surrounded by support. UNLV has opened so many opportunities for me and gave me a family here in Las Vegas."
Malorie, Journalism and Media Studies major
Life on Campus
Life on campus has its benefits – from quick access to all your personal needs to independent living with a built-in support system. Choose UNLV and make us your home away from home.
The RebelCard, your official UNLV ID, can be used at the library and many other facilities on campus. You can also deposit money to your card, and use that RebelCash at participating locations on and off campus.
We bring arts and entertainment to you. From world-class artists to notable speakers, we host a wide variety of cultural, educational, and academic activities that are open to the entire Southern Nevada community.
UNLV has created one of the most affirmative and dynamic academic environments in the country, earning the title of one of the most diverse universities for undergraduates by U.S. News & World Report. Everyone’s experience at UNLV is different from the next, but through our diversity and academic environment, we make sure everyone has the opportunity to succeed.
We may be young, but we are mighty, and we have established many traditions in our short history. Whether kicking off the school year with Premier UNLV or fighting for the right to paint the Fremont Cannon, our Rebel pride shines through.
Las Vegas - it’s in our name, it’s where we call home, and it’s a big part of who we are. Where else can you experience more than 300 days of sunshine a year, run a marathon alongside Elvis, and have unparalleled educational opportunities right at your fingertips?
