#### Abstract

Let U be a multiply-connected region in R^2 with smooth boundary. Let P_epsilon be a polyomino in epsilon Z^2 approximating U as epsilon tends to 0. We show that, for certain boundary conditions on P_epsilon, the height distribution on a random domino tiling (dimer covering) of P_epsilon is conformally invariant in the limit as epsilon tends to 0, in the sense that the distribution of heights of boundary components only depends on the conformal type of U. The mean height and all the moments are explicitly evaluated.
