We hope this new year is treating you and your loved ones well! A lot has happened at University Village since last year. We welcomed all of our residents back home to UV for the spring semester. For the first week of classes, we did a giveaway for a Chromebook to help start one lucky residents’ semester off right.
In addition to welcoming our residents back, we also welcomed a new dining spot in the University Shops! The Bowl had its grand opening on January 18th! The Bowl is a female owned business started by a Florida Gulf Coast University alumna Kylee Brinkman. They offer a variety of acai bowls, smoothies, cold drinks such as cold brew coffee, and has paired up with Kava Culture Bar, to provide options for an in-house Kava & Kratom options! Make sure to go check out The Bowl, located directly next to Slicers. They are open 8:00AM to 8:00PM daily.
