Academic Research Roof Access Request Form

All facility roofs on the University campus are off limits for academic or research purposes except for the Votey Hall and Aiken Center roofs, where all procedures contained here will govern. These are the only two University facilities whose roofs are presently available for academic use.

Applications for roof access for academic or research purposes must be submitted to Capital Planning and Management by means of the Roof Access Request Form (pdf). The Dean of the requester’s academic unit must sign the request. Capital Planning and Management will require a minimum of 30 days processing time before it acts upon an application; the time may be longer if exceptions are sought. 

Please submit completed, signed forms to:

Director of Capital Planning and Management
109 S. Prospect St.
Burlington, VT 05405

UVM’s Risk Management department has designed an OSHA Compliance and Situational Awareness training program that addresses all aspects of safety for non-maintenance personnel to conduct research on the roof of a UVM facility. Before access will be granted, each applicant must complete this program to the satisfaction of Risk Management.
