The University of Vermont combines faculty-student relationships most commonly found in a small liberal arts college with the resources of a major research institution. UVM is located in Burlington, Vermont, which is perennially voted one of America's most exciting small cities. UVM's setting in a valley on the shores of Lake Champlain, between the Adirondack and the Green mountain ranges, inspires visitors and residents.


Exchange students live in UVM residence halls. Students are housed in suite double, traditional double, or within a special housing community for exchange students. Single rooms are available on a limited basis, and students should not expect this format of housing. More information about UVM housing is available from ResLife:


All students have a university meal plan. For more information visit the UVM Dining's website:

*Calendar Year students are not eligible for ISEP housing or meal benefits over the summer break
