Students are required to stay on campus and will share a room with another incoming first year student from their academic school or college. Linens (blankets, sheets, pillows and towels) are NOT provided - so be sure to pack accordingly. We recommend students bring a sleeping bag, pillows, towels, and sheets as desired. Alcohol, drugs and tobacco are not permitted in the residence halls at any time.
Gender Identity: UVM accommodates all gender identity expressions. Feel free to let us know what room assignment makes you feel most comfortable.
