The two-year on-campus housing requirement is an important part of every student’s UVM education.

Studies suggest that students who live on campus adjust more easily to college, are more involved in the campus community, and have more academic success.


Selecting Your Room for the next year

In late October, we email everyone currently living on campus to complete an on-campus housing and meal plan contract. In order to participate in returner room selection, you must complete a contract by the deadline.

  • Still have a housing requirement? If you came to UVM as a first-time, first-year student, you are required to live on campus in a residence hall for your first four semesters. Be sure to fill out your housing and meal plan contract by the deadline. (Students required to live on campus next year who do  not choose a space will be automatically billed for a traditional-style double room, an IRA fee, and a meal plan.)
  • No housing requirement, but want to stay on campus? Even students not required to live on campus (who completed their four-semester residency requirement or came to UVM as transfer students) are welcome to return next year—we have plenty of room for you! Be sure to fill out your housing contract by the deadline. After that, we'll email you more information on when and how to select your room.
