Hillcrest Hall is the largest of the West Campus residence halls with over 800 occupants. Located just four blocks from the Pentacrest and overlooking the Iowa River, Hillcrest is adjacent to the health sciences campus, the athletic and sports complex, and the downtown/East Campus, making it convenient to most parts of the university. Hillcrest also includes a dining facility, a fitness center, and a convenience store.

There is a public cooking facility available for any residence hall student to use. Residents may check out a key for the kitchen at the building desk by scanning their University ID. You must provide your own utensils, pans, and cleaning supplies.
