.: Information :.
Firstly, congratulations on your admission to the University of Vermont.
For incoming students these pages include information about preparatory travel arrangements, housing facilities, student finances and tips for getting familiar with Burlington. This should prepare you well with what to expect as a student at UVM.
Often refered to as "the perfect college town," Burlington is Vermont's largest city and the cultural center of the state. UVM is located on the hilltop in the east side of the city.
With over 10,000 college students in the greater Burlington area, the city thrives with music, theater, shopping, restaurants and a booming waterfront area along Lake Champlain.
Local internship opportunities abound with several large companies having offices in the area, including IBM, IDX, Burton Snowboards and world-famous ice cream maker Ben and Jerry's.
But perhaps the greatest appeal of the area is living in a manageable city with great New England charm and access to urban resources, while surrounded by the beauty of some of the most scenic views and outstanding recreational opportunities in the United States.
