Thousands of Students Move Onto University of Nevada Campus

Posted: Updated:

More than 2,600 students moved out of their parents' houses Thursday - and into the dorms at the University of Nevada.

Students hauled boxes of clothes and electronics to their new dorms, met their roommates and started to get settled.

"There's a lot of stuff, and you have to squeeze it into little tiny spaces! It's just...it's complicated! Ha!," says freshman Emily Hartman.

Freshman Saharath Kleips adds, "about 10 people helped me move all of my stuff all in one trip. It was great!"

And this year campus will be even busier than ever before. About 150 more students will be living in the dorms putting them at full capacity.

If the university continues to grow, they'll have to build more dorms.

"All projections show that we are going to be up in the number of students coming to campus. We are on a track to grow to a larger campus, which will be both more efficient and more exciting," says University of Nevada President Marc Johnson.

The first day of class is Monday.
