Rieber Hall UCLA Reviews

3.7
12 reviews

We summarized all 12 reviews with AI for your convenience.

Rieber Hall offers a mix of pros and cons according to student reviews. The dorm's prime location near dining halls like Feast and Rendezvous is a major plus for residents. The communal bathrooms, while not the most modern, are cleaned daily, and the social atmosphere is vibrant and conducive to making friends. The rooms, especially in the Classic Triple configuration, are noted to be on the smaller side but manageable. The lack of air conditioning can be a challenge, particularly at the beginning of the fall quarter, but students have found ways to cope with fans. The dorm's social lounges, study rooms, and convenient amenities like Amazon lockers make it a comfortable living space. However, some students have pointed out issues like outdated common spaces, occasional challenges with cleanliness in shared areas like bathrooms, and the inconvenience of broken laundry machines. Despite these drawbacks, many residents appreciate the camaraderie and community feel that Rieber Hall fosters, making it a popular choice for those seeking a more social dorm experience.

Location is really good! Relatively close to all the dining halls/food places, which is good. It is a bit of treck to get up there at times, but it is manageable. I was in a double, so there was ample space, but a triple would definitely be cramped. Common spaces, elevators, and bathrooms were prett...

it’s undeniable that living in a classic triple is like living in a shoebox, and the communal bathrooms aren’t any better. but they are the most affordable option, and for what they are, they’re decent! rieber hall in particular was a really nice building to live in, there were high ceilings, lots o...

If you like walking up 1000 flights of stairs back from a grueling walk from campus, this place is for you. Also, feast shut down so why would you live here anyways? Well, aren't the bathrooms clean at least? No. Floor 4 is a beast, people are throwing up in the toilets (you can see the crustiness o...

Good location, social halls, good views, right above Feast dining hall, bathrooms get very dirty but are cleaned every morning, helpful front desk, lot of broken laundry machines, weird smells in certain spots of some halls.

I have found Rieber Hall to be highly sociable and valuable to live for first-year students to gain new connections and friends. It is communal bathrooms which means you will share bathrooms and showers all together but I found myself to be taking care of it with no problem. One of the things you wi...

Rooms: Initially seems kind of cramped, but what else could one expect from a large public university? Personally, I adjusted quickly; it starts feeling comfy. Google "UCLA Rieber Hall room" to see pictures of what the room looks like. Restrooms: Classic halls have communal restrooms. They're clean...

No air conditioning, and if you live on the south side the smell of food from Feast will come into your room. The room is pretty cramped for three people, and the walls are pretty thin. Elevators broke down pretty often.

I honestly think that rieber hall is the best classic dorm for freshman. sproul would be better later on due to the higher concentration of upperclassmen. a lot of people talk about hedrick being the most social for freshmen, but rieber hall was very social (and we didn't have to deal with crazy fir...

Rieber Hall has classic rooms which are technically the smallest room size but I personally didn't have a problem with it unless me and both of my roommates were trying to move around. The communal bathrooms aren't the most modern but housekeeping tries their best to keep it clean and how gross/clea...

I absolutely adored living in Rieber Hall. The one major downside is yes, the rooms are really really small. However the benefits outweigh that one con by so much. While the rooms are small it's totally livable, and I actually had no issues dealing with the space (coming from a girl who has a TON of...
