Books not bets: Nevada casino hotel to serve as college dorm

In this Monday, Aug. 19, 2019 photo, a University of Nevada, Reno student walks toward a security guard as renovation work continues in the lobby of the Circus Circus hotel-casino tower in downtown Reno, Nev., that will house roughly 1,300 UNR students after a July gas explosion shut down two major dorms. The non-gambling, non-smoking building that a subsidiary of Circus Circus leased to the university for $21.7 million has been converted into a residence hall exclusively for students through the 2019-2020 school year.
