Contrary to the floorplans found on the housing Web sites and in their own paper records, the men's restroom is now located on the second floor, with women's restrooms on the third and first. The building contains mostly doubles, with a single occupancy room on each floor (two of which are occupied by RAs - first and third) and two quads on each floor.
Residents of this dorm should refrain from using the bike parking area to the west of the building, as it has a recurring bike theft problem.
Their mascot has historically been The Goat.
In 2005-2006, Rienda was used to house many people unhappy in their original dorms. Everyone who lived there were originally suposed to live elsewhere. Rienda herself was going to lie vacant for a year, so that she could be remodeled at that time. After the asbestos issues with the new Tercero DC came to light, Rienda and Campo (another one scheduled to be remodeled) were thrown into active service in case a mass emigration from Tercero occured. In fact, the number of émigrés from Tercero was not overwhelming, so that even off campus students were able to join her, and a number of vacancies endured all year.
During Fall '05 its poor residents were stripped of AIM for days at a time, about once per fortnight, due to some combination of DNS problems and the traffic shaper putting AIM at the same priority as P2P apps. Residents also had problems with the AC units back in the summer of '02 when we got a massive 2 week long heat wave.
In Fall 2010, Rienda won the Intramural Sports football championship for the Residence Hall division.
