Welcome To Hill

We welcome you to Hill College House! Designed by famed architect Eero Saarinen to serve as the dormitories for Penn's women students, today we are a vibrant residential community of about 550 men and women. We have a strong commitment to the freshmen of Penn — a commitment shared by an energetic group of upper class students who live in Hill for its leadership opportunities. Our House is ideally located near major academic buildings, libraries, retail shops, and athletic fields. We also have our own dining hall, Underground recreational room, and a comfortable library where students can bring their laptops to work, in addition to lively lounges where residents can socialize. Take a look around our site and get to know Hill!
