A Village in GreenHouse is defined as a group of 32-40 students whose rooms are geographically located in a hallway of University Heights South. The main purpose of the villages is community. Over 250 students live in GreenHouse, so each village is a nested community inside of the larger GreenHouse community.The main functions of villages are:
- To create small, nested communities of 32-40 students inside the larger GreenHouse in which returning UVM students and first-year students learn and live together.
- To provide some sort of service to the GreenHouse, UVM, or Burlington community during each semester. The type of service and logistics are all determined by each individual village.
- To provide space for students to practice initiating and planning events, to organize a group of fellow students to create and implement a service project, and to explore non-academic environmental interests with a group of their peers.
