We strive to ensure that all students are healthy, successful, and engaged.

One way we help develop our students is by requiring them to live on campus for their first four semesters. Through experience and research we know that on-campus students have higher rates of retention, satisfaction, and academic success. A common residential experience helps students connect with peers; receive support from faculty and staff; and foster academic and social development.


Welcome! We're glad you'll be joining us in January, and invite you to start exploring the UVM Housing Experience now. Here's a quick look at your on-campus housing timeline:
