 From the University of Nevada:

University of Nevada, Reno President Marc Johnson announced today that Lincoln Hall and Manzanita Hall will be preserved. His announcement came after constructive dialogue with students, faculty, alumni, structural engineers, historic preservationists, and other interested community members.

“I am pleased that so many Nevadans have shown strong interest in the traditions, heritage and role of the University of Nevada, Reno. The historic beauty of the Reno campus is a treasure to be protected as we expand enrollment, research and community engagement. Lincoln and Manzanita Halls represent our heritage and we are pleased that these historic buildings will continue to serve the university in important ways,” President Johnson said.

Lincoln Hall and Manzanita Hall are listed in the National Register of Historic Places as part of the University of Nevada, Reno Historic District, which was designated in 1987 and includes 13 contributing historic buildings on the University’s campus.

As previously announced, Lincoln and Manzanita residence halls will no longer be used to house students after June 30, 2015. The University will work towards a plan that addresses the needs for historic preservation, seismic performance and new student residence accommodations.

The University is currently in the process of updating its Facilities Master Plan to include teaching, laboratory, administrative and residential space needs commensurate with the University’s projected growth.

“We will look at options for alternative uses of these buildings that meet the needs of our University,” President Johnson said.
