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

Best college tour we went on. Informative, entertaining and just the right length of time. What a terrific and well organized school in a beautiful environment!

I studied there for a semester as an exchange student from France, and I just loved it. Such a good experience, and so many things to do there. Plus, Burlington as a whole is so lovely.

We found the university campus so inviting. The architect so like we are used to - set in a beautiful New England setting, that feels warm, safe and full of history. The downtown an extra bonus - filled with lovely restaurants, shops and something always going on - not to mention an emphasis on being "green". Definitely looking forward to... More

Beautiful and historic buildings set around a lovely green campus. University store is worth a visit. Shame about the lack of convenient parking. Park downtown and ride the free bus up the hill to the main campus.

The campus is very pretty with lots of well-built, distinctive buildings. It's walking distance to the downtown shopping area and to the lake. Beautiful!

The campus at UVM is exquisite. It is what most people think of when they think of a college campus. The staff and students are warm and welcoming and the location above Lake Champlain couldn't be any better. A short stroll down the hill puts you right on Church St. with loads of interesting stores and restaurants. Spring and fall... More

We have seen all sorts of beautification projects around UVM in recent years, and the campus does look lovely. In time for parents weekend, row after row of mums and purple cabbage were planted in the most viewed-by-parents spots. The entrances to financial aid, for example, were quite attractive. Our daughter will be paying her college loans for many years,... More
