What's in the name?
The original Residence Halls at UC Riverside were named after two Scottish cities linked by the famed Aberdeen-Inverness railway. The line stretches from Aberdeen, Scotland’s third-largest city, located on the coast of northeast Scotland, to Inverness in the Highlands.
Originally, Aberdeen, A and B wings, was all male. Inverness, D and E wings, was all female. By the early 1970s, the twin-residences became fully coeducational.
The most common living arrangements in the Residence Halls are double-occupancy rooms. Double rooms are same-gender.
Offered at a discounted rate, a limited number of triple-occupancy rooms are available. Triple rooms are same-gender and include a bunk-style bed or a loft space.
