The UVM Greenhouse Facilities are located on three sites in Burlington and South Burlington, Vermont.  We serve the research, teaching, and outreach needs of many departments at the university.

UVM Main Campus Greenhouse Complex, as the name implies, is located on the UVM main campus in Burlington, Vermont. Completed in 1991, this computer controlled 8,000 square feet, glass structure is divided into 11 adjoining compartments and an outdoor nursery. This facility is used by faculty, staff, and students in teaching, research, and extension. Of the three facilities this is the only one that is regularly open to the public. It is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., except holidays. Connected to many research/teaching buildings through Stafford Hall and the newly completed Jefford Hall this greenhouse is located adjacent to metered visitor parking in the Davis Circle. 

BioResearch Complex (BRC) Greenhouse facilities are located off Spear Street in South Burlington, Vermont. Comprised of four structures (one glass and three poly covered) built over many years by members of the Entomology Research Laboratory group, these structures have served as the nexus for greenhouse entomological work for the state.

Horticultural Research Complex Greenhouse facilities are located at the Horticultural Research Complex off Green Mountain Drive in South Burlington, Vermont. Comprised of two poly covered houses (one built in 2003; the other in 2005) this facility serves, for the most part, UVM student club activities.
