We are the Catamounts

The UVM Catamounts — 18 varsity teams (8 for men, 10 for women) — compete at the NCAA Division I level and are members of the America East Conference, the Hockey East Association and the Eastern Intercollegiate Skiing Association. Go directly to the Athletics website.

Top-flight student-athletes

The Catamounts excel on the field and in the classroom. Vermont is the only school in America East history to have won the Academic Cup seven straight years (2005-2011) — the cup is presented to the institution whose student-athletes post the highest grade-point averages during that academic year. UVM student-athletes also participate in community service and outreach projects around the state of Vermont.
