Residential Life

UCR Residential Life is committed to the development of a safe, inclusive, living and learning community; which holistically fosters academic, social, cultural, and personal growth.

 

 

Give It Shape

Optimum communities are built from pieces – pieces of courage, consideration, responsibility, and friendship. To make the community living experience meaningful, you must build with these pieces. Inject energy and enthusiasm, and pursue the common goal of making the community experience meaningful.
