Campus offices continue to develop new ways of figuring out how to best deliver what you need, when you need it. It's going to take some teamwork, but UVM faculty and staff are keeping support services accessible and learning on track.


Pro Tip: Many offices are improvising how to bring the talks, sessions, and events you’re used to happening every week online. Follow your favorite UVM clubs, orgs, and departments on social media for updates on how they plan to adapt their services to work digitally. UVM's social media directory can help.

Support for Remote Learning

UVM is open for learning, we're just doing things a little differently. Resources are available to get you through this tough time. Be kind to yourself and ask for help. You're not alone.

"We always recommend using a calendar and making to-do lists — but it’s even more important now that it’s up to you to manage most of your time.  Use a calendar or planner to carve out time for participating in class remotely and identifying time you’ll be working on homework. Try thinking of it as a work schedule — but for learning. Did you know you already have a digital UVM calendar? Log into your UVM email (, click the icon made up of 9 small boxes in the top left corner, then select 'Calendar.' Voila! Your own personal UVM calendar."— UVM Bored blog


"What do I do if I'm sick?" "Can I get help with my academics?" "Is the library open?" Frequently Asked Questions.

question mark

This is a time when the community at UVM is undeniable. Units on campus are working around the clock to come up with the information you need to make this time easier. We've compiled a fairly exhaustive list of Frequently Asked Questions that we hope you'll check often. And remember, there's a call center — staffed 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily — to answer questions that you can't find elsewhere: (802) 656-HELP.

Continue to Make the Most of UVM Services

Student success is — and will remain — a top priority. Most offices have converted support services to remote operations and look forward to hearing from you; the most accurate information regarding hours and contacts will be available on their websites. Seeking a service not listed? Or need help with a unique situation? Call the COVID-19 Call Center at 802-656-4357 (HELP).

Stay Connected Through Virtual Events

It's important to stay connected. Technology to the rescue:

Ways to Give Back

It's in the UVM DNA to think greater than oneself. Despite isolating at home, there are still ways to give back. And at times like this, it feels pretty good.

Disclaimer: We are sharing opportunities and needs in the State of Vermont. The University of Vermont has not vetted or researched these opportunities, and cannot warrant or recommend one opportunity over another. It is your sole responsibility to thoroughly evaluate any volunteer organization or opportunity before engaging. Please keep yourself and your community safe by practicing social distancing and follow the guidelines.

Practice Social Distancing

Social distancing

Social distancing is among the best ways to slow the spread of COVID-19. But what does it look like?

  • Keep your distance. Stay at least 6 feet away from others.
  • Avoid large gatherings and crowded spaces, including public transportation.
  • Avoid close contact, especially with the elderly.
  • Limit social plans. Use technology instead of meeting face-to-face whenever possible.
  • If you're feeling ill, please call Student Health Services or your health care provider.

And remember: social distancing doesn't have to mean emotional distancing.
