Out of Town Researchers

Special Collections welcomes out of town researchers to visit and study our rich collections. Please consult the Hours and Location page to determine the when and where part of your visit to Lied Library Special Collections.

Taxis
Lied Library is a short taxi trip from most Strip hotels. If you'd prefer to take a taxi to campus, please direct your driver to our cross streets: East Harmon Avenue and Swenson Street. For GPS use 944 E. Harmon Avenue, Las Vegas, NV.

Personal/Rental Vehicles
Parking regulations for the academic year are in effect on campus during the week (days/times below); a permit or payment for metered parking is required.

  • Monday-Thursday, 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
  • Friday, 7:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m.

Metered spaces are available around the library on a first come, first served basis. Meters charge $.25 per 15 minutes, and accept quarters only. After 1:00 p.m. on Friday, you may park in a metered space without paying, or park in any unoccupied spaced labeled "Student" or "Staff". For researchers who plan to spend an extended period in Special Collections, it may be more convenient to purchase a day or week pass from UNLV Parking Services, which will enable you to park in any student space.

Accommodations
Campus accommodation is not currently available during the academic year. There are a variety of hotels and extended stay motels available near campus. Please see the attached list of nearby accommodations compiled by UNLV Event Services that offer discounted rates for UNLV guests. From mid-May to mid-August, campus housing is available for UNLV visitors; more information can be found on the UNLV Conference Housing site.
