Since 1791, the University of Vermont has worked to move humankind forward. Today, UVM is a top 100 research university of a perfect size, large enough to offer a breadth of ideas, resources, and opportunities, yet small enough to enable close faculty-student mentorship across all levels of study, from bachelor’s to M.D. programs. UVM inspires students to develop innovative solutions to the world’s challenges, think and work on a global scale, and shape meaningful careers.
Here, students’ educational experience and activities are enriched by our location — from the energy and innovation of Burlington to the forests, farms, and independent spirit of Vermont. Our hometown perennially appears on national rankings that praise its livability, access to nature and recreation (including the best skiing in the northeast), thriving food and music scene, rising identity as a technology and innovation hub, and its status as a top college town.

University of Vermont Reviews
What stands out the most for me is the sense of community at UVM. From the moment I stepped onto campus, I felt welcomed by the warm smiles and friendly "hellos" from students and faculty alike.
The academic experience at UVM is equally phenomenal. With professors who genuinely care about their students, I feel challenged in all my courses. I've explored a variety of subjects, and discovered passions I never knew I had.
UVM's commitment to sustainability and environment is another aspect I deeply appreciate. From the LEED-certified buildings to the abundance of eco-friendly initiatives on campus, UVM has a strong green ethos that permeates every aspect of student life. Go UVM!
