Worst dorms at UCR?


Verified Student

There's pros and cons and stereotypes that everyone knows of at UCR when it comes to dorms, but I heard that Aberdeen-Inverness was the least exciting. It's pretty social in AI, but it's one of the older dorms and the utilities and bathrooms aren't as nice as the others.

The University of California, Riverside (UCR) is a public research university in Riverside, California.

There are 4 dorms that are available to freshmen: Aberdeen-Inverness (AI), Dundee, Pentland Hills, and Lothian (East and West). Lothian and AI are your typical dorms, Pentland is a suite-style, and Dundee is similar to a hotel. Dundee and Lothian have their own dining halls which is a plus. Glen Mor and North District are popular on-campus apartment options for second-years and up. Falkirk, The Plaza, and Bannockburn are relatively inexpensive apartments but do not come with furniture. Stonehaven is a gated community.
