Hilltop Halls


Welcome to Hilltop Residence Halls

Ellsworth & Hale

Hilltop Halls (HTH) is comprised of about 600 students, including some upper division students and student athletes. Hilltop Halls consists of two identical buildings: Ellsworth and Hale, which offer traditional doubles and singles with community restrooms. Each building has a community kitchen, a TV lounge, an indoor bike rack, a classroom with whiteboards, a laundry center, and lounges on each floor. Hilltop Halls is located mere seconds from the closest dining hall, Putnam Refectory, and two easily accessible game rooms in Werth Tower and Garrigus Suites. The Hall Director office for Hilltop Halls is located in Ellsworth Hall. Ellsworth and Hale are both located in the center of campus, and approximately a 10-minutes from the recreational center, student bookstore, and a plethora of academic buildings. Just outside is a beautiful greenspace, usually blocked off to any traffic, making it an ideal space to study, eat, or just enjoy the outdoors with friends.

If you would like to take an active role in leading the community, the HTH Hall Association always has room for another volunteer to plan large social or philanthropic events!

There are 16 Resident Assistants (RAs) in Hilltop Halls who are led by 1 Residence Hall Director (HD).
