This campus is not as impressive as Princeton or Yale or as cute as Dartmouth or Brown... but it is a very nice campus to have a walk in, especially at fall when the students are back and the leaves have begun changing colors. There are some pretty nice buildings on S Prospect street and University place. The small museum... More

We just returned from a weekend in Burlington for the UVM Open House. What an impressive university, in a great small city -- right on Lake Champlain. UVM is integrated into the community in a unique way, and the combination has a great vibe. Academically, UVM also has a higher rating than you might expect, including recognition for innovation. The... More

While Burlington was nice (and crowded) we actually LOVED staying at Windekind Farm the most. We cannot wait to go back!

We walked around the campus on a Fall Sunday afternoon. The buildings are a work of art with nice landscaping and beautiful backdrop of the mountains, very scenic !

I love UVM and each time I come back to Burlington I appreciate it more and more and wish I could go back to the University for another four years. So many renovations are being done and the students of the future will be better off because of it.

A visitor should just walk through the campus and take in the buildings. Visit the Fleming Museum, Ira Allen Chapel and the Davis student center. I highly recommend you eat at the restaurant in the Davis center. It is all farm to table and they tell you where they get all the food in the area on a map. It... More

Our daughter received both her undergraduate and a graduate degree from UVM. It's a great place to walk around if you're visiting Burlington. The view of the mountains to one side and a view of the lake from the other! Visit the Davis Center to get your UVM t-shirt!

The University of Vermont (UVM) sits at the top of Main Street overlooking the city of Burlington. It is a state university with a terrific reputation for scholarship and location. Its reputation is so good that it has often been called an outstanding "public ivy" on a par with Ivy League private colleges and universities. UVM has been a part... More

This campus is really pretty and has some decent age to it and it is shown in its buildings. I would not mind if one of my kids went to school here so we could visit often
