No lodging facilities are available on the UNLV campus during the academic year. However, Las Vegas has plenty of hotels. To extract the lowest room rates, we recommend two particular sources. We recommend that in your hotel search you stay focused on Las Vegas Boulevard's (a.k.a., the Strip) major hotels. The cheapest major hotel on the Strip is usually Circus Circus. The only complaint we have heard from our delegates about this hotel is that although it's on the Strip, it's not in the heart of the Strip. Hence, the distance could be inconvenient. We also recommend our favorite booking website is booking.com.

For the shortest distance from the Strip to campus, you may proceed by walk (if you are a very good walker) from where the Strip intersects Flamingo Avenue or Tropicana Avenue. Way beyond the Strip and the tourists, the closest casino and hotel to our conference location is the Silver Sevens Hotel & Casino. At Silver Sevens and other "nearby" hotels to the campus (click here), the lodging is still a considerable distance from the conference location. And far from the Strip where all the Vegas action is. This is why we strongly recommend lodging at the casinos on the Strip. Ideally find a hotel between Circus Circus and Luxor. This stretch is very safe, the action never stops, and you may walk freely and enjoy yourself into the night.
It doesn't matter as much where you stay on the Strip as long as your location is in the vicinity of the Monorail and tram stops. The two systems between them cover most parts of the Strip. Read information about the Monorail and tram connections.
