BILL HAMMONS' GUIDE TO BOULDER, COLORADO AND BEYOND

The Hill (a.k.a. "University Hill")

Yes, no one refers to "The Hill" as "University Hill" unless he or she is a city official.

The Hill is the section of town west of Broadway and CU campus favored by students both as a residential area and as a hang-out (especially late at night). The area is also favored by some older and wealthier residents who resent the antics of their student neighbors (though tensions have probably decreased since the city banned couches from porches, thus discouraging rioters from setting bonfires in the neighborhood).
