(BLOOMINGTON) - Indiana University officials are discussing plans to have the Hill at Collins Living Learning Center closed at the end of this school year, torn down and potentially replaced by a new building for the School of Informatics and Computing.

The Hill, consisting of Brown and Greene Halls, is located near Woodlawn Avenue and 11th Street and has been a part of Collins since the 1990s.

Vice President of Capital Planning and Facilities Thomas Morrison says the post World War II cinder block building will be demolished over time because it is in bad need of renovations, but no plans have been confirmed by IU officials.

These changes will be part of a campus-wide upgrading of all the housing facilities within the next few years.

Hill houses 120 students as well as the clubhouse, a series of art studios, lounges, a dark room, a cinema and other related activities.

This isn't the first time the Hill has been threatened to close. In the 1990s, the Hill, housing many upperclassmen at the time, was set to be closed. This decision caused students to stage "Save the Hill" protests that were successful.
