Residence Halls

Complement Your Scholarly Pursuits

Be a real local on campus. Residence Halls connect you to the pulse of campus life – not to mention a community of more than 3,000 UCR students

About Residence Halls

Instead of simply being a place to sleep, our four Residence Halls – Aberdeen-InvernessLothianPentland Hills, and Dundee – are filled with programs, activities, and amenities designed to help you adjust to college and steer you towards your personal path to success.

Each community features 24/7 computer labs, high-speed internet, on-site convenience stores, and academic support. For your safety, buildings are access-controlled.

But mostly, it’s the human factor – our professional staff and trained Resident Advisors – that transforms our Residence Halls into your home away from home.
