About University of Nevada, Las Vegas:

Founded in 1957 as a extension of the University of Nevada, Reno, UNLV has grown from its humble beginnings as Nevada Southern. Students adopted the Rebel name and mascot to reflect their desire to break free from UNR. In 1969, the students of Nevada Southern won that fight and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) was created.

Since its first classes were held in 1957, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), has undergone an amazing transformation, from a dusty outpost on the south edge of town to a thriving urban research institution. Over the past three decades, UNLV continued this steady rate of development — erecting more than 100 buildings, developing dozens of graduate programs, creating partnerships with the community, fielding nationally ranked sports teams, founding an alumni association, promoting scholarship, establishing a fundraising foundation, and recruiting diverse and talented students from across the country. Along the way, thanks to its innovative frontier spirit, UNLV has kept pace with one of the country’s fastest-growing and most enterprising cities.


Today, UNLV has come a long way from the high school dressing rooms that once served as its classrooms. Thanks to the dedication of faculty, staff members, students, generous donors, and Las Vegas residents over the past half century, the university has much to celebrate.

  • In 2013, UNLV had its largest freshman class of over 3,000 students.
  • There are 1,800 student living on-campus and 12 residence halls.
  • As of Spring 2014 there are 27,848 total students.
    • 23,099 Undergrad
    • 4,765 Graduate
    • 3,961 Employees
  • UNLV main campus is 335 acres.
  • UNLV and its sister school UNR are Arboretums which were established in 1985.
  • UNLV is one of the nation’s most diverse campuses for undergraduate students ranking 6th, according to U.S. News & World Report’s best college ranking of 2014.
  • The UNLV team won second place overall in the prestigious international Solar Decathlon sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy. The UNLV student-designed home, named DesertSol, blended consumer appeal and optimal energy efficiency.

Some of the biggest broadway shows end up coming the Las Vegas, as well as most musical world tours. Many of the casinos are influenced or modeled after the greatest architecture in the world.

Contrary to popular belief, most residents of Las Vegas do not partake in the 24/7 entertainment lifestyle that built the city. Most locals compare Las Vegas to any other large metropolitan city. Outside of the tourist-focused areas, there are grocery stores, schools, parks, and family homes everywhere. Most locals come to Las Vegas not for the entertainment, but for the climate. The Las Vegas Valley is enclosed by the Mojave Desert. The city enjoys an average of 310 sunny days a year. The summer sees highs of over 100 degrees and lows in the high 70’s. The average winter temperature is around 48 degrees with rare snowfall. While the summer temperatures may soar, the humidity is very low, around 10% year round. This beautiful weather leads to many locals spending a lot of time outdoors. Many homes have in ground pools leading to summer BBQ’s and Pool Parties. To the East, Lake Mead offers boating, swimming, scuba diving, fishing, and much more. The west side of the valley is bordered by mountains. They enclose Red Rock Canyon which offers beautiful desert landscapes, hiking, and biking. Also to the west is Mount Charleston, a nearly 12000 foot peak that offers an escape from the desert. The pine trees are covered in snow about half of the year hosting a modest ski resort. The rest of the year people enjoy hiking, camping, and other activities on Mount Charleston’s slopes.

Many of the Las Vegas businesses are national chain stores. Directly adjacent to the campus are many eateries, they include McDonalds, Jack-in-the-Box, Subway, Jimmy Johns, SmashBurger, In-N-Out, Aloha Kitchen, Cafe Rio, Rumbi Island Grill, and many more.
