Mesa Court was the first residence hall community at UCI, opening with the campus in the Fall 1965. It is now the largest student community on campus, housing 1,834 undergraduates in 29 residence halls.  Each hall accommodates between 54 and 71 residents in suite-style layout.  Mesa Court houses mainly first year students.
