Estill Hall is a dormitory located north of 16th Street between Avenue J and University Avenue.

The 1964 Alcalde notes the dorm housed 286 girls; this number has decreased slightly over the years (262 by 2000, and 252 by 2010).

Beginning in 1970 this was one of two dorms to maintain a pool and one of three main canmpus swimming areas; it was removed in 2007 because of bigger and better aquatic facilities at the Recreational Sports Building.
