HOW YOU GET HOUSING DEPENDS ON YOUR STUDENT STATUS:
All first-time, first-year students are required to live on campus for four semesters. Our data suggest that students who live on campus adjust more easily to college, are more involved in the campus community, and have more academic success.
Degree and non-degree students who are part-time, but intend to enroll in at least nine credit hours may request housing, but it is not guaranteed. If their enrollment drops to fewer than nine credits at any point during the semester, they are required to meet with their residence director or area coordinator, and we reserve the right to terminate the housing contract.
Students not registered for classes (who have either withdrawn voluntarily or been suspended/dismissed) are no longer eligible to live on campus. They have 48 hours from the date of withdrawal to remove all belongings and check out of their room, and must follow standard checkout procedures through their residential complex office manager.
International Exchange students are required to live on campus except in certain circumstances (contact the Office of International Education with questions).
If you are required to live on campus, we will send a housing contract to your UVM email account after receiving your name from the Office of International Education (OIE).
Incoming students who require a housing accommodation should contact Student Accessibility Services upon acceptance to UVM. Comprehensive documentation is required and requests should be submitted by June 30 for best consideration.
Current students must renew housing accommodation requests each year.
Veterans who have completed two or more years of documented military service are welcome to live on campus, but are not required to.
