Colleges in Nevada

There are 10 colleges in Nevada, 7 public and 3 private, offering a wide range of programs and majors. Nevada has both small schools (defined as less than 2000 students) and "very large" ones (10,000 or more students) and everything in between, including community colleges, in urban and rural environments.


The University of Nevada-Reno is the oldest public university in the state. The campus is the site of the College of Engineering's large-scale structures laboratory, the University of Nevada School of Medicine, and the Donald W. Reynolds School of Journalism, which has produced six Pulitzer Prize winners.


The University of Nevada-Las Vegas is located in the Las Vegas suburb of Paradise, a mere mile and half from the neon lights of the famous strip. It's home to both the only law and dental schools in the state, the William S. Boyd School of Law and UNLV School of Dental Medicine, respectively.
