Regan Hall, the oldest dormitory on campus, offers a unique community experience with its small, tight-knit atmosphere. Despite being older, the dorms provide a charming and clean living space, with some students appreciating the quad setup for added personal space. The central location near facilities like Segundo DC, Memorial Union, and the gym is convenient for residents. However, the dorm's age shows in thin walls and occasional pest visitors like crickets. The gendered bathroom setup per floor and limited common areas have been points of contention, along with the lack of elevators in some buildings. While some students found the communal kitchens and study lounges beneficial, others criticized the lack of amenities and security concerns, such as poorly lit bike parking areas and theft incidents. Overall, Regan Hall's rustic charm and strong sense of community make it a recommendable choice for those who value a close community and proximity to campus amenities.

The dorms in Regan are the oldest on campus and form a small community next to Primero (dorms for transfer students). They don’t have the nicest rooms in this area, but the location is pretty good in my opinion (close proximity to Segundo DC, Memorial Union, UMall, etc.). There are fewer people that...

Summary at bottom. Quad configuration was awesome. The fact that I could be up late at night working in the main room while my roommate slept was invaluable and helped us avoid many arguments over our very different sleep cycles. The sleeping area is very small, and the main room not exactly spaciou...

The Regan complex is walking distance from the Segundo DC (the best one), Segundo Services, and the ARC. The buildings themselves get a bad rap for their outdated style and lack of amenities but tend to foster tight-knight communities. Has a summer camp atmosphere.

Absolutely awful. The walls and ceilings are paper thin and I can hear everything. There's only one common area so basically no place to study if your room isn't an option; there's only one bathroom on each floor and for only one gender. Only one laundry site, one common kitchen for all seven buildi...

I lived in Indio during my freshman year. Everyone seems to hate on Regan for being some of the oldest dorms on campus but it honestly is a pretty charming area with a nice community feel. My building was all female so I didn't have an issue with the bathrooms there, but for some of the other buildi...

There’s only one bathroom per floor. So if ur a dude who lives on the second floor u gotta walk all the way downstairs and if ur a girl who lives on the first floor u gotta go upstairs for the bathroom. Also the dorm building is surrounded by a bunch of trees so if u have seasonal allergies it’s gon...

Regan is a collection of dorms with one main building that acts as a meeting/ study area. I was in Sereno Hall. Old building, but has plenty of bike parking and is super close to the ARC/ Segundo DC. All doubles or singles and has a communal kitchen. Sereno was also home to the Music, Arts and Perfo...

I found the quad to have a lot more room than a typical double because the desks were in a separate common area that allowed my roommates and I to have more personal space. The dorms are older and don’t have elevators and the bathrooms alternate genders by floor. Regan is in a great location on camp...

Campo Hall within Regan is one of the oldest dorms on the campus, but personally, I loved it. It is small (about 60 people) and only 2 stories. It has a sort of court-yard feel and has a better sense of community (in my opinion) than many of the other dorms. Dorm rooms were bright and clean! Only do...
