University of Pennsylvania Completes $80M Renovation of 261-Unit Student Housing Property

PHILADELPHIA — The University of Pennsylvania has completed the $80 million renovation of Hill College House, a 261-unit on-campus residence hall. The five-story, 195,000-square-foot property offers student lounges, seminar rooms and a 300-seat dining area. Mills + Schnoering Architects of Princeton, N.J., led the design and construction team for the project. The property was originally designed by Eero Saarinen and built in 1960 as a women’s dormitory. Renovations at the property included the restoration of the building’s ‘drawbridge’ entrance and landscaped ‘moat’; the removal, restoration and refitting of over 400 windows; an expansion of the dining facilities; the addition of new furniture and finishes; and the conversion of all bathrooms to individual restrooms and shower rooms.
