Hilltop - Offline Starting June 2020

Hilltop will be retiring at the end of the 2019-2020 Academic Year and therefore will not be a housing option for the 2020-2021 Academic Year. Students interested in apartment-style housing can visit our Apartments page to see available options for the 2020-2021 Academic Year and contact the Housing & Residential Education office with any questions.



GlobalRes is a themed community designed for students who wish to live in a culturally diverse environment. The community will include both international and domestic DU students as well as a graduate coordinator who will provide engaging cultural learning opportunities for students on a monthly basis.
