The University of Vermont continues to be here for our visitors and community.
But during this time of social distancing, we're doing things in new and creative "virtual" ways.
Visit Us Virtually
"Usually, at this time of year, I would be urging you to visit our beautiful campus for admitted student days, and see the wonderful small city—a place like no other—that we get to call home. But the need to halt the spread of COVID-19 means we’ll be doing things differently." — President Suresh Garimella
For our admitted students, we want to answer your questions and show you your classrooms, labs, and other facilities that set a UVM education apart. For our prospective students, we want you to begin learning about what makes UVM so special.
- Take a self-guided Virtual Admitted Student Visit where you'll get to know your academic homebased -- and -- get a feel for the student experience.

"What does social distancing look like?" "Will the Catholic Center remain open?" "What are the hours of the library?" Frequently Asked Questions.
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.
