City of Henderson

As Nevada’s second largest city, Henderson is defined by its inclusive character, just like Nevada State College! Nestled in the foothills only 15 miles from the iconic Las Vegas Strip, we are proud to BE HERE in a friendly local community that offers ample cultural, outdoor, and year-round accessible activities.


Housing Options

You can BE HOME anywhere in the Henderson and Las Vegas metropolitan area. Privately-owned apartment complexes are near campus, and the valley offers plentiful housing options for commuters. Our new on-campus student housing will be ready for Fall 2020.


Things to Do

In addition to regular on-campus events, BE DELIGHTED by the Las Vegas Valley’s countless nightlife, culinary, shopping, cultural, and entertainment options. Enjoy year-round access to Southern Nevada’s world-class outdoor recreation including hiking and cycling.

Bus Passes

BE TRANSPORTED around the valley with a discounted UPASS from our partners, the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC). Nevada State College students, faculty, and staff can buy a 30-day or full-semester transit pass, for a savings of 50 to 60 percent off normal rider fares, from the bookstore, cashiers office, or RTC offices downtown.
