Real Residents Speak About Living in Moore-Hill
"It's just about a 5-10 minute walk to classes on campus. Big rooms and I didn't have to clean the bathrooms."
Matt Jackson, Geological Sciences freshman
"The staff was very friendly and caring about the students living here. John Ray was the custodian on the third floor that really made an impact while I was here."
Tyson Bruner, Engineering freshman
"What I like most about living in Moore-Hill is the staff. The RAs are really cool, they try to answer all you questions. They put on fun programs and interact with their residents on a personal level. Also Housekeeping is really nice. They say hi to you hallway and always have smiles on their faces."
William Lyons, Chemistry junior
A Bit of History
Hill Hall is named for Dr. Homer Barksdale Hill of Austin who volunteered to treat the UT Football team from the very first game in 1893 until his death on July 18, 1923. Dr. Hill received his MD from Tulane University and moved to Austin in 1889. Located just South of Hill Hall on 21st Street, the five story (including basement) Moore Hall connects with Hill Hall on the first, second and third floors. Moore Hall was named in memory of Dean Victor Ivan Moore who served as the Dean of Student Life from 1927 until his death on August 6, 1943.
