About The Hill Center

The Hill Center began construction in May 2012 and opened its doors in winter 2014.

The 40,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility located on Vanderbilt Ave. is the first new building on the Brooklyn Campus since McEntegart Hall Library opened in 1965.

The building is fittingly named after S. Elizabeth Hill, SJC's sixth president who retired in June 2014 was the driving force behind the development of this amazing facility and the growth of the athletic program on the Brooklyn Campus.
