Hilltop is a historic building on the Mary Baldwin University campus in Staunton, Virginia. The original section was built about 1810, with a large brick wing added in 1904. It is a two-story, five bay, stuccoed brick building. It features a huge two-story hexastyle portico with massive Tuscan order columns. Originally built as a private dwelling, it was converted to dormitory use. In 1991, it was completely restored thanks to the patronage of heiresses Margaret Hunt Hill and Caroline Rose Hunt.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 1979.
