Keeling Apartments

Hawai’i, Moloka’i, Kaho’olawe, Maui, Lana’I, O’ahu, Ni’ihau and Kaua’i.

The Keeling Apartments are located in the south west corner of the Revelle Campus. There are eight communities within the Keeling Apartments with one Resident Assistant per community. These apartments are designated for Revelle continuing students. Each apartment is designed to house six students in four bedrooms (two single rooms and two double rooms).

Namesake History

The Keeling Apartments were named after Charles David Keeling, a scientist who worked with Roger Revelle at Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO). Keeling is most famous for his recording of the progressive buildup of carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere. From his research came the Keeling Curve, which first alerted the world to the possibility of global warming. He conducted his research at the Mauna Loa Observatory on the big island of Hawaii. It is because of this connection to Hawaii that the eight communities in the Keeling Apartments are named after the eight Hawaiian Islands.
