The University of Vermont (UVM) is one of the nation’s premier small research universities, recognized for outstanding undergraduate education across all disciplines as well as leading graduate and research programs in the biological sciences and several other fields. A hallmark of a UVM education is combining learning with service to build skills and knowledge aimed at improving lives and the health of our planet. The university is located in Burlington, Vermont, a vibrant small city surrounded by inspiring natural beauty. Students thrive in and out of the classroom and are successful in gaining entrance to top graduate programs and at launching rewarding careers. A UVM education has enduring value.

Living in the UVM Community

With students from across the United States and many countries around the world – 65 percent of our enrollment comes from outside Vermont – the University of Vermont is unique among public universities. Our community of just under 10,000 undergraduate degree students and 2,000 graduate and medical students embraces diverse perspectives and wide-ranging intellectual and social interests. A key element of the university’s philosophy is to encourage and facilitate student success, with support ranging from faculty advising (every undergraduate student has an advisor) to specialized student services promoting the academic success and overall wellbeing of each student. With more than 100 student clubs, 18 Division I sports, a wealth of arts and entertainment opportunities on campus and throughout Burlington, and some of the country’s best hiking and ski trails in our backyard, UVM students never lack for fun and healthy engagement.
