Where To Go: Registration
When you first arrive for the Living Without Borders encuentro, you should head for the Student Union building on UNLV’s campus. The registration table, film, workshops, keynotes, and most other events will be held at the Student Union.
The Student Union building is at the edge of UNLV campus, near the intersection of Maryland Parkway and Harmon Avenue. You’ll see a large, wide parking lot in front of the alumni center, a high-rise office building (FDH), and a big building with a banner reading
Student Union along the front wall.
Where To Go: Entertainment
Our Saturday night free pachanga (concert) at Yayo Tacos located in fron of UNLV. Please click on the link for a map and details of the restaurant.
Where To Go: Lunch at La Casita
Lunch on Saturday and Sunday will be served at
La Casita on UNLV campus (HOU, the Multicultural Center / Centro Multicultural), a meeting center with open, relaxed spaces for finding a comfortable seat, sharing a meal and sharing experiences and conversation.
La Casita is a short walk from the Student Union building, towards the south side of campus. Walk out past the courtyard, following the direction signs to HOU. You should be walking away from the high-rise office building next to the Student Union (FDH), and towards the campus bookstore and the Tonopah Residence Complex. You’ll find a small road called Brussels St.; there should be a large student parking lot on your left, and student church centers (the LDS Institute of Religion and the Thomas Aquinas center) on your right. Pass by both; the Multicultural Center will be at the end, marked with a sign on the front lawn. Just come up the walk way and through the front door!
UNLV’s main campus is located in central Las Vegas between Tropicana Avenue, Maryland Parkway, and Flamingo Road. It is easily accessible from McCarran International Airport or Interstate 215. For driving directions, just enter your starting address at Google Maps (use
McCarran International Airport if you need directions from the Las Vegas airport).
