North Campus


The new UNLV graduate and research campus planned for the north part of the Las Vegas Valley is the combined vision of government, civic, business, and university leaders. Those leaders recognized that economic diversification and growth is highly dependent on the availability of a first-class research university.

The initial focus of the campus will be graduate education and research. UNLV intends to draw on the collective strengths of other Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) institutions operating in the Las Vegas Valley such as the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) Nevada State College (NSC), the College of Southern Nevada (CSN), and the Desert Research Institute (DRI) to provide the broadest possible educational experiences at all levels.
