REBEL FROM ORDINARY LIVING AT THE DEGREE – A U DISTRICT COMMUNITY!
We want your college student to be successful and happy throughout their career at UNLV. Allow them to enjoy the perks and convenience of living on the UNLV campus as you reside at The Degree – an official university affiliated housing partner. This brand new apartment-style community is located at the north end of campus and is UNLV’s only on-campus apartment style living for non-freshmen students. We provide the best living and learning environment for your student to have the best college experience. Our study aiding amenities include team collaboration rooms, individual study cubes, and lounges in our clubhouse. Our social amenities include a Vegas resort style pool with sun decks, outdoor cabanas, an outdoor fire pit and BBQ lounge, and outdoor gaming areas as well as media rooms in our clubhouse. Want a break from the sun? Exercise in our on-site fitness center complete with weight and cardio equipment. Your options are limitless at The Degree.
Individual leasing means peace of mind for you. Your financial responsibility is only for your student’s space unlike many apartments or rental houses where a joint lease is signed. If a roommate transfers to another school or moves out of The Degree for any reason, you do not have to worry about having to cover their portion of rent. This is just another reason why The Degree is UNLV student’s best new housing option!
On-site Professional Staff
Our maintenance staff will respond to your student’s maintenance issues quickly and professionally. The Degree offers 24-hour emergency maintenance as well so that your student’s comfort is not affected.
Affordable Floor Plans
The Degree has four spacious floorplans so your student will easily be able to find one to suit their needs. We have two-bedroom and four-bedroom options as well as a double occupancy option. Each Bedroom includes a private bathroom. Your student’s rent includes modern furniture, internet, 48-inch flat screen with a robust cable package, access to The Degree amenities, and so much more!
The Degree is a fully-furnished community, saving you money! Each student will have a full-sized bed, large desk and chair, dresser, closet, and private bathroom. Individually occupied bedrooms also come with an end table. The living area comes with a comfortable couch, chair, end table, TV stand with a 48” flat screen. The kitchen comes fully equipped with quartz countertops and island with barstools, energy efficient appliances, full size refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, and washer & dryer.
If your student does not have a roommate in mind, we can find them one! Each roommate will fill out a Roommate Matching form so that we know what they are looking for in a roommate. During the summer, we spend weeks looking at these preferences and matching them up with the best person we can find!
Resident Events to Keep Students Involved
While the main focus of your student’s college career will be about graduating and getting a fulfilling job, they also need to have fun along the way. At The Degree, your student will create life-long relationships and connections that will make them even more successful. Our great staff plans monthly resident events to get them involved. These events range from pizza parties to movie nights, from resume building classes to gaming tournaments. Annually, The Degree will have events such as a Welcome Back Party at the beginning of the fall semester, a Casino Night at the beginning of the spring semester, and many other events throughout the year. We will also keep our residents connected to events going on at UNLV as well as events happening around town so they don’t miss anything! We want your student to succeed, and that’s why we thought of them while designing The Degree to be in the center of it all!
Limited Access Building
Limited Access means your student has a fob to get into the building at all times and that the doors are locked. Individuals who do not live in the building will need to be accompanied by a resident at all times. Our limited access building ensures the best monitoring for your student.
