Although Green House at Seventh Street dormitory is one of the lesser known dorms on campus, it is the most unique — its approximately 90 residents are immensely committed to environmental sustainability.

There are no elevators to take students to and from their spacious four-person, apartment-style rooms, and the dorm is covered in reminders to recycle, shower less and reduce overall usage, making it a dream come true for tree-hugging students. Also, since this is the smallest dorm on campus, residents consistently brag about its sense of community.

Each room features a refrigerator, couches, tables and chairs. There is also a recently renovated shared kitchen in the basement along with a game room, study lounge and laundry room. Green House is located on St. Mark’s Place, making it only a 10-minute walk from classes and a five-minute walk from Third North Courtyard Cafe. This is a perfect East Village location to access coffee shops, bars and restaurants while surrounded by a passionate community.

However, remember that minimalism is key while moving into these dorms, since everything you bring must be carried upstairs. But this could serve as a great time to meet people while reinforcing old friendships with the team effort of moving in and out of the rooms.
