Hepburn is situated at the top of the hill, between Mead Chapel and Stewart Hall. Housing 164 students, , Hepburn Hall also offers several study lounges, a large central lounge for Commons Council meetings, a classroom, and the production office for the student weekly newspaper, The Middlebury Campus. The highlight of the building is a black box theatre nicknamed the "Zoo", where 20 student productions or more take place each year.
