Directions to the University of Vermont and the Humphrey Symposium:

  • General directions to the Davis Student Center
  • UVM campus map
  • The closest parking lot (see map for parking) on Saturday for the Humphrey Symposium is the employee and visitor parking lot adjacent to the James Jeffords Hall, just east of the Davis Center. Notes:
    • You will enter the Davis Center on the east side at ground level, but ground level at this entrance is the 3rd floor.
    • The Jeffords employee-visitor parking lot can be entered directly from Main St just after the "jug handle" at East Ave., but only when you are traveling west on Main St.
    • Alternatively, you can enter the Jeffords employee-visitor parking lot from East Ave by turning onto Carrigan Drive, then turning left (south) just after the stop light.
    • If you are approaching UVM going east on Main St., you need to exit onto Spear St, then immediately go left through the "jug handle" to put you onto East Ave. going north – then turn left on Carrigan Dr. at the stop light.
