Hilltopper Hall is a six story residence hall built in 2018 and is located in the "Valley" parallel to College Heights Blvd. and next to the Kentucky Museum. Hilltopper Hall houses 400 students and features study rooms, a large kitchen and community areas on each floor. The main floor hosts a Makerspace for creative and innovative work, tv/gaming areas, study rooms with individual study pods, and a large community space. Hilltopper Hub, a all-you-can-eat dining location, is located on the main level and is open to the community. 


Residential units include one- and two-bed suites. Each suite includes a bathroom with a toilet and shower, as well as a dressing area that includes one closet per bed and a sink with vanity. The living area of the suite includes a bed, dresser, and desk for each student.

Community Areas


The lobby provides public and residential access to the building. The residential entrance is locked and has a 24-hour security and information desk. Guests can enter the Hilltopper Hub dining area through the main entrance lobby.


Residential Commons 

The Residential Commons are located on the ground floor of the building. The commons are separated from the lobby so that access to the commons may be restricted to building residents or opened to non-residents during certain hours. The Residential Commons includes the following spaces: reception desk, package storage room, vertical circulation, staff offices, laundry, gaming lounge, study rooms, makerspace, open study lounge, and recreation lounge.


Study Rooms 

Several closed study rooms of various sizes are located in the residential commons and on each floor to provide space for group study and project work. Study pods for individual study are located in one of the study rooms in the residential commons.



The Makerspace was designed with hands-on learners in mind: artists, engineers, innovators, students who need to spread out and get their hands dirty. This unique campus environment is a playground for creativity and provides opportunities for out-of-the-classroom learning and cooperative teamwork. 


Study Nooks 

At the end of each upper floor corridor, a small study nook opposite the stair offers an opportunity for students to study away from the activity of the rest of the building while admitting daylight and views to the corridors.
