Village 1

V1 - Village 1

Village 1 (V1) was designed to offer students the ideal combination of community living and privacy.

There are equal opportunities to spend time studying alone or in groups, and to socialize with others from your house or community. Village 1 enables students to spend more time achieving their academic and personal goals and to successfully adjust to university life. 

Village 1 consists of 26 houses, separated into 4 quads. Each house has 3 or 4 floors, with 14-16 people living on each floor. Houses are co-ed, but floors and bathrooms are single sex.
