In 1976 the first residents of [UC Irvine Residence Halls] Middle Earth selected the theme for the community, choosing names for each of the seven phase I halls from J.R.R. Tolkien’s book, The Hobbit. Thereafter, a committee of students and staff have researched and recommended the names for the rest of the community’s buildings from Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
Apparently, there’s a dorm named the Shire for honorary freshmen!
