Technology is a vital tool in providing the connection we need to build communities remotely. That applies to the nuts and bolts of accessing the tools and services you need to complete to-do’s; and also in ensuring that we’re able to connect to one another and build lasting relationships heading into the fall.

Here’s a quick UVM tech toolkit to help you make the most of connecting to UVM (and your peers) throughout the summer and beyond:


UVM Email & Calendar

Every UVM student, staff, and faculty gets their own UVM email account and digital calendar.  Check yours regularly - adding your UVM email to your phone makes it easy! You can also access your e-mail and calendar from any web browser by visiting mail.uvm.edu.

Blackboard is UVM’s online course management system. It lets your professors communicate with you online, share resources and readings, and grade your works all in a central location. It also provides you with the ability to submit assignments digitally, write reflections, and participate in written discussion.  A number of classes at UVM will require you to use blackboard to submit assignments and participate in class projects.

Microsoft Teams

Video calls, chats, small group meetings and our Live Events will mostly take place on Microsoft Teams this summer. You can access Teams from the web, but we recommend installing the handy desktop or mobile app.  Just download and log in with your UVM netid and password - and you’ll be good to go!
