Dundee-Glasgow Project



The Dundee Student Housing and Glasgow Dining Project (Dundee-Glasgow Project) is anticipated to provide 820 new residence hall student housing beds and an approximate 830-seat dining facility. The housing will provide much needed residence hall housing which is targeted primarily towards for first year students and the dining will replace the outdated dining facilities at the existing Aberdeen-Inverness residence hall. In addition, the Dundee-Glasgow Project will provide functional open spaces, multi-functional rooms (e.g., spaces that can alternate from classroom, meeting space, study area, etc.) and other student support amenities and, which will enhance the student experience at the University of California, Riverside (UCR).

The Dundee-Glasgow Project will establish a distinctive living-learning, mixed-use community that intentionally creates a sense of place with new student housing being aligned with appropriate residential life programs that provide a balance of privacy and community to enhance the overall academic experience for UC Riverside students.

The project is being delivered via a public-private partnership (P3) delivery model. UCR has partnered with national student housing developer American Campus Communities (ACC) who will be managing the project and responsible for its successful delivery. Benchmark Contractors, Inc. (a subsidiary of Morley Builders) is the general contractor for the project, and Soloman Cordwell Buenz (SCB) is the project architect. Construction started on December 17, 2018 and the Project is targeted to open in fall of 2020.
