What's in the name?
The Pentland Hills Residence Hall, UCR’s first all-suites community, was named for a range of bucolic hills that runs from Edinburgh and Midlothian to the northeast, through West Lothian and southwest to South Lanarkshire.
Most of the land in Pentland is upland pasture, and the area is a paradise of walking trails, wildflowers, ancient ruins, reservoirs and open spaces — particularly the 22,000-acre Pentland Hills Regional Park. Robert Louis Stevenson once called the Pentland Hills "The Hills of Home." Who are we to argue?
The most common living arrangements in the Residence Halls are double-occupancy rooms. Double rooms are same-gender.
