All transfer students are either required or eligible to live on campus. We look forward to helping you have a successful and positive experience as you join our UVM community.

New transfer students not yet aged 20 by the first day of classes have a two-semester housing requirement. Transfer students age 20+ do not have a housing requirement but may request on-campus housing (subject to availability).

Joining us in August and have an on-campus housing requirement?

Submit your housing and meal plan contract:

  1. Activate your UVM NetID  after your admittance to UVM.
  2. After you have paid your acceptance fee, complete a Housing and Meal Plan Contract.
  3. Log in to  and select  2023-2024 Housing and Meal Plan Contract.
  4. Explore your  Learning Community options  and rank preferences on your contract.
  5. Contact  Student Accessibility Services (SAS)  if you need an ADA housing accommodation.

Don't have a housing requirement but still want to live on campus?

You may request housing, but are not guaranteed space on campus. We guarantee space to all students with an active housing requirement. Based on the current number of students with a Fall 2024 housing requirement, we are expecting almost no housing to be available for students who do not have a housing requirement. Students without a housing requirement are encouraged to look for off-campus housing for the 2024-2025 academic year.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can incoming transfer students apply to be a RA at UVM?
A: Transfer students may apply for the RA position, provided that they are able to provide documentation for having lived on campus at their previous institution and meet the minimum requirements for the position. A video interview will be set up to allow incoming transfer students to interview, should they reach the interview stage.
