The Green House


The Green House at 7th Street is a residential community where living and learning is dynamic and constant. The focus of this living learning community is to provide an alternative living option that is supportive of a greener student lifestyle, while maintaining opportunities to connect with other students in a community living environment.

The Green House supports NYU’s commitment to creating a more sustainable urban campus through programs offered in the hall, as well as facilities renovations designed to reduce energy and water use.  Seventh Street is a smaller residence hall designed to provide more opportunity to know your neighbors and build better relationships.  

At the Green House, you will experience hallmarks such as communal dinners with your floormates, more plentiful recycling opportunities, and conservation themed programming.  We expect that students will not only build community within the Green House, but also outreach to the surrounding community by partnering with local greenmarkets and community gardens.

As a commitment to sustainability, the Green House is paperless, additional bicycle racks are available, and a number of energy saving measures are installed throughout the building.  The two Resident Assistants (RAs) in the Green House receive specific training on sustainability and commitment to living green.   

The Green House is an exciting living learning community in which we hope you will become involved! All upperclass students interested in “shrinking their footprint” are invited to apply for the Green House.   


Meet Scott Miller, Green House Faculty Affiliate


Husband, Father, Teacher, Actor are the roles I most commonly connect my identity to nowadays. I am grateful to experience abundance in all these roles. My passion is to  awaken, in myself, a continuous consciousness, my power, in all that I do. Since this can’t be done alone we teach each other.

I graduated from Villanova University, received my JD from George Washington University School of Law and played professional baseball in Mexico all before coming to New York where I began to act, write and teach. After two theatre companies, two production companies, three years with Uta Hagen, five years’ work with a Native American Healer, TreeFa World Inc., a communications company, was formed. Through it and through my work here at NYU in the Graduate Acting program I constantly experiment with ways our voices may more accurately reveal our truth not only to each other, but to ourselves.  

Scott Miller, FA
