The Automotive Shop performs most repairs on University-owned vehicles including:

  • repairs in response to departmental requests
  • preventive maintenance & oil changes
  • auto body repairs and refinishing
  • state inspections on University-owned vehicles

The above services are charged to departmental budgets. The Shop is located at the Fort Ethan Allen in Colchester, about 3 miles from the main campus. Staff work from 2:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. each working day, enabling repairs to be done during off hours when it's most convenient for departmental customers. For convenience, the shop will pick up UVM vehicles from any campus location, and will usually return them prior to the start of the next working day.
