The Utah Valley University (UVU) greenhouse, operational since 2012, is located on the 3rd floor of the Science Building on the UVU Orem main campus.  This is a 2600 sq. ft. facility consisting of a headhouse and three climate-controlled greenhouses (temperate, tropical, and arid).  This facility is equipped to control the climate in each greenhouse, including heating/cooling, humidity, and sun exposure.  Maintained within the UVU greenhouse is a variety of living plant specimens used for demonstration in various botany and biology courses, laboratory experiments, propagation, and specimens as part of the permanent species collection. Besides housing plants for demonstration and the permanent collection, the UVU greenhouse provides space for various faculty and student research projects.
