The Village Center

Published: Nov. 6, 2017 By ,

There’s more going on at the Village Center in Williams Village than just the amazing dining center—lots more!

Right across from the entrance to the dining center, you will find the Village Market, that just opened in August. This convenient addition offers fresh produce, groceries, baked goods, frozen meals, coffee, sandwiches, salads, over-the-counter medicines and more! Even better? There is a new grab-n-go located right in the store. For a meal swipe, Toast on the Run offers hot oatmeal, a yogurt bar, breakfast burritos and biscuit sandwiches for students that would prefer to take breakfast on the run.

Next door to the market is The Grotto, the Village Center’s answer to your late-night needs. Open from 4:00 pm to 2:00 am daily, it offers a cozy spot to study, meet up with friends or grab some freshly prepared food. The Grotto features freshly made burgers, hand-spun milkshakes, nitro cold brew coffee and more. They also have TVs, perfect for catching your favorite games or joining in on movie nights. They’re also going to start hosting live music, so keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates.

Located just inside the southeast entrance of the building, you’ll find the Health and Counseling Clinic, operated by Wardenburg Health Services. This brand new office offers integrated health services to any student but is particularly convenient to the Will Vill community, including Bear Creek. You can get help with minor illnesses, injuries and also get confidential counseling. For hours and details, including prescription pick-up info, visit the Wardenburg website.

If you're looking for a study space where you can find both a quiet corner to concentrate or a large table to meet up for a group project, the Village Center Dining area upstairs (VCStudy) is a great choice. It's open Sunday through Thursday from 9:00 pm to 1:00 am and offers plenty of seating. You can also grab some fresh food from The Grotto or snacks from the Village Market to keep your energy up while you study.

In the new year, you will see an entrepreneurial space open up in the building, so watch for news, and next year The UPS Store will open a brand new space, serving all of Williams Village!
