Hilltop House

What’s so great about Hilltop?

Built in 1995, Hilltop House is a corridor-style building, opened to all class years. It is comprised of single, double, and triple rooms.

Often referred to as “Chilltop” because of its relaxed energy, this co-ed residence hall was updated with all new furniture and furnishings in the Fall 2015. There are study cubicles located on the fourth floor, a laundry room, TV lounge and kitchenette on the first floor, as well as several social lounges for students to connect outside the classroom. In the warmer months, residents frequent the shared sand volleyball court right outside!

One professional staff member, an Area Coordinator, and four student staff members (Resident Advisors) live in the building to help support and foster a safe, positive and engaging community.

Night Attendant positions are available in the residence hall for residents who are eligible. Learn more about Work-Study.

Fun Historical Facts about Hilltop

Hilltop House was built in 1995 and is the “sister” residence hall to Oyaron House.  Students were very involved in the planning and got to pick everything from carpets to door tags. When they opened, 229 students lived in Hilltop and Oyaron Houses, which were called New Res I and New Res II until formally named for the hillside landscape that surrounds them. A faculty member filled a Faculty-in-Residence position serving both Hilltop and Oyaron.
