students dining on campus

Living on campus can be one of the most rewarding aspects of the UVM experience. Students may never again come in contact with such a variety of individuals in one community.

KEYS AND ACCESS

sign for your room key at check-in

Always carry your room key with you. Lock your door whenever you leave your room and before you go to sleep. If you get locked out, you can borrow a temporary loaner key free up to three times a year. There is a $25 charge for a fourth lockout.

  • WHAT IF YOU LOSE YOUR KEY? Submit a Fix-it to request a lock change, unless you would like it done immediately. In that case, contact your main desk, RA, or UVM Police. There is a $55 charge for a lost or unreturned room key.

 

use your CATcard for building access

It also gives you access to the laundry machines, and to your dining plan. Always carry your CATcard with you. Create a WEBcard account so you can shut off your CATcard if you misplace it. Never attach your key to your CATcard. If you lose them together, your room can be identified.

 

LAUNDRY

High-efficiency washers & dryers are located in each residential complex. They are free to use by swiping your CATcard. Set up a WEBcard account and you can even reserve a washer or dryer ahead of time!

MAIL AND PACKAGES

After room assignments are released, view your mailing address in myResLife. You will receive your mailbox number & combination at check-in. Each residential complex has its own mailroom.

Please do not ship packages until the week before halls open. Be sure to have things addressed to you (not your parents). For quick, accurate delivery, use unit#/street address of your mailroom and zip code 05405. Mail and packages with incorrect address information may be delayed or returned.

PHONES AND TECHNOLOGY

PHONES

All residence halls have at least one phone on each floor that residents are welcome to use for emergencies, or to make outgoing local calls. To make long-distance calls, a pre-paid calling card is needed. There is no landline service in student rooms.

 

NETWORK ACCESS

All student rooms and common areas have wi-fi (wireless) access. Each student room has two Ethernet jacks, and residents can connect to the UVM network either way. For optimal speed when streaming & for gaming, we recommend you bring an 25-foot Ethernet cable. Due to netwrok security, routers, hubs, sniffers, or wireless access points are not allowed. Read more about Information Technology.

 

TVs

Due to the popularity of online TV, there is no cable TV. To set up a smart TV:

  • Check your smart TV product info to see if you can connect directly to a “wired” (Ethernet) network
  • If you can, use TV setup info to find your TVs MAC address
  • Visit go.uvm.edu/playonline and fill out the form, including the MAC address of your TV
  • Devices that connect wirelessly must support WPA2 Enterprise encryption standards to work UVM wireless networks
  • Check Device Menu for WPA2 Enterprise settings
  • Use your UVM NetID and password when prompted
