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.


2019-2020 Room Selection for current students returning to campus:

  1. In January, housing and meal plan contracts are offered to all current on-campus students for the following academic year (August 2019-May 2020).
  2. Preferences for specific Learning Communities are included on the contract.
  3. After receiving their Learning Community (LC) placement, students can also apply for Enhanced Experiences within their LC.
  4. All current students who complete a 2019-2020 housing and meal plan contract by January 22 will select their rooms in March.
