Visting UVM Greenhouses


Due to COVID-19 restrictions: The University is currently closed to the general public. For UVM employees and students that are cleared to be on-campus we encourage you to stop by the UVM Main Campus facility.

The complex is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. (except UVM holidays).

Visitation Rules:

  • Visitors will have a maximum of 30 minutes to view the conservatory.
  • Masks are mandatory at all times while in the conservatory.
  • Hands must be sanitized before entry (dispenser will be conveniently placed at main entrance).
  • Sign-in at main entrance.
  • 6 feet of distance between other visitors at all.
  • At any time, visitors may be required to confirm they are cleared to be on campus that day.
  • Each conservatory has a maximum visitor occupancy of 3.
  • No sitting.
  • No on-site consumption of food or drink is allowed.
  • No backtracking - visitors must follow the posted flow pattern.
  • Anyone not following visitation rules will be asked to leave by Greenhouse staff.
  • UVM courses needing to access the conservatories will take precedence, and visitation will be prohibited on these days/times.
  • The conservatory will remain closed to any non-UVM personnel until policies change within the university.
    Additional Safety Measures:
  • Greenhouse staff will spray down conservatory door handles with sanitizing alcohol every hour during visitation hours.
  • Exhaust fans will be turned on to low speed during visitation hours to increase air exchange per hour (>30-60 per hour).

Directions: The UVM greenhouses are located on the Main Campus of UVM in Burlington, Vermont just off East Avenue, next to the Davis Student Center.  Attached to the James M. Jeffords Hall and the Stafford Building, our main entrance is through the Stafford Building. Visitor parking is adjacent to the greenhouse (spots are metered through a parking app) in the Davis Circle.

The BioResearch Complex greenhouses and Horticultural Research Complex greenhouses are not open to the visiting public.
