Redwood and Sunset Halls, known as "The Hill", are our traditional residence halls. Each building is three stories and houses 225 students in primarily double rooms with a limited number of triple and single rooms. The triple rooms are the same size as double rooms. The buildings are L-shaped and there are approximately 40 students per floor on each wing. On the first floor, one wing of the "L" is female, the other wing is male. On the second and third floors, men and women are assigned rooms next to each other. Bathrooms are not co-ed. Each room is furnished wih a bed, dresser, desk and closet for each resident. Every student in the Hill has the ability to access the internet through wired or wireless connections. The rooms are also wired for optional telephone service and cable TV service. Each floor has a study area and a TV lounge. There are kitchen, laundry and storage facilities in each building along with vending machines and ping pong tables. Daily custodial services to clean hallways, bathrooms and lounges are provided.

The two buildings face each other, forming a center "quad" which is used for playing frisbee, sun bathing, etc. A sand volleyball court and a barbecue are located near the buildings.
