It is a beutiful campus, very well maintained, with historical and modern buildings. People around are very nice and willing to give you information. It pretty close to downtown Burlington, so you can walk around very easyly. There is a free bus that drives you around.

A beautiful campus overlooking Lake Champlain and the compact but diverse city of Burlington. Back in the day when I was a student here ('60's) the lake front was a mess-run down warehouses and oil polluted stretches of lakeside. Now there are bike paths, docks and many nice restaurants with a lake view towards Plattsburgh and the Aderondacks. Up at... More

We spent a couple of days here doing some family research at the library. The campus and its students are friendly and hospitable, as well as quite lovely.

Spent a wonderful weekend at the UVM campus in Burlington visiting our grandson who si in his freshman year. We were very impressed with how open the campus was and how friendly all the students we ran into were. A gorgeous setting in the height of a spectacular fall makes us all wish we were back in college.

We drove around this beautiful campus to look at the buildings and even went to the Catholic Church to see how it looks like. Like everything I have seen in Vermont, this university is neat, clean, organized. A total pleasure to visit.

Perfect location at the top of the hill in Burlington, VT. Look right down the main road and see Lake Champlain. Great school with a friendly, relaxed vibe.

Founded in 1791, UVM is the 5th oldest university in New England. Beautiful campus, and engaged student body. Drive or walk around to enjoy the hill top environment. This is one of America's great state university's and it brags about its well regarded College of Medicine. Did I mention that I am a proud graduate?

My daughter attends UVM and I must say it's one of the best city campuses that we've seen. It's centrally located in the city, but still has a traditional campus feel.
