Student Profiles


UNLV draws most of its students from the surrounding metropolitan area of approximately 2 million people, and reflects the diverse and non-traditional nature of its surroundings. Awareness of the characteristics of our students is an important first step in meeting their needs, and this is the purpose of providing the Student Profile summaries available here.

  • Nearly 25% of all UNLV undergraduates are 25 years or older, and 48% of graduate and professional students are 30 years or older.
