Arts and Creativity students relax on lawn

Celebrating and exploring the arts, the Arts & Creativity Learning Community encourages and supports UVM students to find their home in this creative community.

Share and explore your interest in the arts within a creative community, and explore how your identities and experiences make it easy (or difficult) to express your own creativity!


Students have the opportunity to engage with students, staff, faculty and artists through weekly formal and informal connections, artist workshops, lectures, performances, exhibits and social gatherings.

  • Become engaged in a variety of opportunities to develop and explore skills in the visual and performing arts. 
  • Bring your interests and passions to our community, while being open to new experiences.
  • Develop self-awareness, and awareness of others’ creative expression, and practice building an inclusive creative community.
  • Discover your place as an A&C citizen—whether as a creator, performer, cheerleader, or community-builder.


Resident Advisor (RA): Work closely with the A&C team as a primary resource for students to build a sense of home and support community connections and involvement. Students interested in this position should be on the lookout for RA Info Sessions in November.

Arts & Creativity Student Employee: If you have a Federal Work-Study award, you may apply to be one of our communities' student employees. Learn new skills while helping create a sense of community that is positive, supports inclusion and difference, and raises the excitement for the Learning Community with thoughtful and intentional programs.

Hall Council Member: A great way to have a voice and action in our A&C community. More information about Hall Council available at the beginning of fall semester.


  • Art & Crafts Night: Zines, buttons, books, watercolor and acrylic painting, perler beads, collages, bullet journaling--we embrace and celebrate every form of creativity in our Learning Community.
  • Outdoor Student Performances (spring & fall, weather dependent): Whether you are here to perform or to listen, our Friday Night Amps brings all of Trinity campus to our green space.
  • A&C Spring Art and Music Festival
  • Movie Nights
