As a UVM graduate, I rarely pass the chance to visit the campus when I visit Burlington. Aside from a few new features, like the Davis Center (which didn't exist when I attended UVM), the campus remains much as I remember it. You can't beat the classic New England architecture. The red stone buildings, some of which date back a... More

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.
