What's in the name?
Dundee is the fourth-largest city in Scotland, located in the Eastern Lowlands, on the Firth of Tay, which flows into the North Sea. The city began as a “Royal Burgh” in the late 13th century, and later became one of Scotland’s major trading and whaling ports — and for a century or so, the center of world jute production.
The name "Dundee" is made up of two parts: the common Celtic name “dun,” meaning fort; and a second part that may derive from the Gaelic “dè,” meaning 'fire'.
The most common living arrangements in the Residence Halls are double-occupancy rooms. Double rooms are predominantly same gender. Opportunities for assignments without regard to gender identity exist in Dundee North, 4th Floor.
A limited number of single-occupancy rooms are available.
Room and furniture layouts may vary.
