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 the UVM community!

  • Requirement is for all new transfer students not yet age 20 by the first day of classes.
  • The housing requirement is for two semesters.

  2. After you have paid your acceptance fee, complete a Housing an Meal Plan Contract:
  • Log in to myResLife.
