We summarized all 26 reviews with AI for your convenience.

West Lothian dormitory at UCR is a mixed bag, offering both positive and negative aspects according to student reviews. The dorm provides spacious storage under the beds and ample closet space, though the beds are quite high. It boasts communal areas like a dining hall, Starbucks nearby, piano and meditation rooms, and a courtyard. However, the thin walls and doors can be a drawback, and students have no control over the thermostat. The location is convenient for accessing campus facilities but may have Wi-Fi issues for those living farther from the floor. The social atmosphere is a highlight, making it easy to forge friendships. On the downside, the outdated facilities and lack of temperature control can be inconvenient. The communal bathrooms can also be a concern if hygiene standards are not maintained. Overall, West Lothian offers a lively environment with proximity to dining options and study spaces, but its age and maintenance issues may deter some residents.

There is a lot of storage space under the beds and the closets are spacious. The beds are quite high so just beware of that.

Cons: The building is old, I remember having lots of rain leaks in my dorm, but I think they already solved the issue. Though, stuff s...

As much hate as it gets, I don’t think West-Lo is as bad as everyone makes it. The bathrooms are not always the cleanest but that’s the fault of an individuals. It sucks you can’t change the temperature but it is what it is. It’s the closet to campus though which is nice but the farthest from things...

The pros of West-Lo: they have a dining hall downstairs, a nearby Starbucks, and Glen Mor market. The cons: it is far from the campus and It is smaller compared to East-Lo. :(
