 "The most social House"

Hill House is a vibrant residential community with a special commitment to first year students. The House Dean, Faculty Director, House Fellows, Resident Advisor and Graduate Associates are dedicated to providing residents with personal and professional assistance to successfully transition to University life both intellectually and socially. Internationally renowned architect Eero Saarinen, whose design concept was grounded in the idea of a small village, self-sufficient, inward-focused and protected, designed Hill House with spaces that foster communication, collaboration and community. Students are drawn to this community for the sense of belonging and personal relationships fostered by the architecture.

Hill College House

At Hill College House, we care deeply about integrating first-year students into a community that will ultimately launch them into a successful career at Penn, and beyond. We live in a space that was quite literally built to connect people to one another, and we take that very seriously. 

In fact, Hill rests on four pillars: Empower. Explore. Engage. Express. These pillars drive the programs and events we offer inside and outside of our house, on and off campus, that define our community. And to our incoming community, we say: congratulations on getting admitted to Penn and look forward to welcoming you to Hill College House.
