In order to improve human thermal comfort of residential buildings in urban village, the study of indoor thermal environment is necessary. Three typical selected houses in Huangpu Village were taken as an example to study. After a seven-day field measurement under the condition of natural ventilation, thermal neutral temperature and PMV indices were calculated based on the collected data. It is shown that the PMV values of the houses vary from -0.5 to 2.1, and the acceptance rate differ significantly in different houses and human activities states. The parameters including outdoor air temperature, indoor air temperature and PMV were studied through the linear regression, and the results demonstrate that their correlation coefficients are high, and their relationships have been developed. The results of this work create a precedent for the indoor thermal environment design and control of urban village buildings in China.
