GreenHouse Residential Learning Community


GreenHouse is one of UVM's Residential Learning Communities, providing environmentally-themed programming for nearly 200 students from a range of majors. Established in fall 2006, the GreenHouse is located within the new University Heights South (UHS) Residential Complex--a LEED-certified building designed to be energy efficient and incorporate local and recycled construction materials. Although most of the community members live within the S1 section of UHS (where the program offices are located), GreenHouse is a truly interdisciplinary community involving students, faculty, staff, and mentors from across campus and the greater Burlington area.

Like other residential learning communities at UVM, the GreenHouse program is designed to engage the whole student, tying together the intellectual, ethical, and social aspects of college life. By living together with fellow students who share common interests and ideals, the individual student becomes part of a true community, a community that is also tied to the greater world beyond the confines of the university. In addition, students, faculty, and staff are given the opportunity to interact outside the classroom, the lab, or the office, thereby encouraging the pursuit of knowledge as a lifetime activity.
