Bruin Hills became part of the Hillview community in the 1990’s when the University purchased the property and renovated it for student use. It houses 62 upperclassman students.  It has the feel of a smaller community, which makes it ideal for that first transition into apartment life.  You will often find students grilling on the back porch of the clubhouse or studying at the picnic tables throughout the complex.
