The upper campus residence halls at the University of Pittsburgh include Sutherland Hall, Panther Hall, Pennsylvania Hall, the fraternity housing complex, and the Darragh Street Apartments. Among the newest residence facilities at the University of Pittsburgh, these buildings reside on the upper campus located near many of the school's athletic facilities. The upper campus resides approximately 200 feet (61 m) above the lower campus that lies along Forbes and Fifth Avenues, providing dramatic views along the hilltop and slopes. Planning for upper campus student housing originated in the late 1960s and early 1970s, but stalled due to community and political opposition until the early 1990s with opening of Sutherland Hall, the first major student residence constructed by Pitt in 29 years.

Famous quotes containing the words halls, upper and/or residence:

    The good grey guardians of art
    Patrol the halls on spongy shoes,
    Impartially protective, though
    Perhaps suspicious of Toulouse.
    Richard Wilbur (b. 1921)

    When my old wife lived, upon
    This day she was both pantler, butler, cook,
    Both dame and servant, welcomed all, served all,
    Would sing her song and dance her turn, now here
    At upper end o’the table, now i’the middle,
    On his shoulder, and his, her face afire
    With labor, and the thing she took to quench it
    She would to each one sip.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The death of William Tecumseh Sherman, which took place to-day at his residence in the city of New York at 1 o’clock and 50 minutes p.m., is an event that will bring sorrow to the heart of every patriotic citizen. No living American was so loved and venerated as he.
    Benjamin Harrison (1833–1901)
