Message from UNLV Housing – 3/17/2020

Dear UNLV Family Members,

We are reaching out to provide you with information shared with students who live on campus today. We know the coronavirus outbreak has created unusual circumstances and uncertainty for everyone. We thank you for your patience as UNLV has adjusted operations over the last several weeks. Our focus continues to be providing a safe environment for our entire university community.

While there are no known cases of COVID-19 on our campus at this time, we have made the decision to request students move out of UNLV residence halls no later than 5 p.m. Saturday, March 21. This includes residents at Dayton Complex, Tonopah Complex, South Complex, and Upper Class Complex. It does not include residents at The Degree and Legacy LV as these properties are privately managed. 

Students who are on spring break and plan not to return/cannot return by Saturday, March 21:
Housing will assist students on a case-by-case basis and may have options to assist you with getting your things packed and shipped. Please contact

Students who do not have other housing options or cannot return home: Please fill out the survey at the following link:

Students who receive approval to remain on-campus may be relocated to other on-campus housing. Please note that dining options on campus may be limited.

If you have further questions, please contact the housing department immediately by visiting the Main Housing Office in Tonopah North, emailing or calling (702) 895-3489.

Again, residents at The Degree and Legacy LV are not included in this request and may remain at these properties. For questions about apartment-style leases, please contact the Community Manager at:

We recognize this is disruptive and inconvenient, and we thank you for your patience and understanding. Our primary goal is to keep you safe and healthy.

  1. With the dorms now closing how does this affect WUE? How do we ensure it is still awarded for my student in sophomore year and beyond? Financial aid does not have the answer and we want some direction and assurance that there will not be a consequence to being forced to move out.

    1. Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) update: “The short answer is no – we do not expect that students’ decisions to complete their spring semester online, from home, will have any effect on their WUE status this semester, particularly in light of the institution’s decision to move to online instruction. Please understand this answer provides guidance on only the WUE program at this time. The longer answer is that many of the aid programs students receive operate under UNLV’s purview, and other sources of funding require more planning before we can speak definitively about all the aid sources to our students. We will have more structured answers about the other financial aid programs very shortly. But for now, decisions to complete the semester online (but from home) should not impact their WUE status this semester.” I hope this puts your minds at ease! More detailed info will continue to be shared as I receive it!


      1. Thank you! So am I to assume that since it would not affect their WUE status for this semester it also would not affect it for future years?
