Student Affairs & Campus Life


Life at UNLV extends far beyond the classroom – it’s the friends you make, the bustling campus that surrounds you, and the adventures waiting to begin.

Student Affairs

Everyday events such as club activities, recreation, and community service build character and transform students into leaders. Student Affairs offers programs and services that create and foster a campus experience that empowers students to improve themselves and their community.

Student Union

The Student Union, commonly referred to as the SU, offers amenities for everyone; whether you need to grab a bite to eat, hold a meeting, or just have some fun. From the food court to the game room and social lounges, the SU makes everyone’s day on campus a little bit better. The student newspaper and offices of the student associations and government are housed here, too.
