Since 1791, the University of Vermont has worked to move humankind forward.
Today, UVM is a Public Ivy and 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 student-faculty mentorship across all levels of study, from bachelor’s to MD programs. UVM students’ educational experiences and activities are enriched by our location—from the energy and innovation of the city of Burlington to the forests, farms, and independent spirit of Vermont. The University provides students endless ways to explore the world, challenge ideas, and dig into the most pressing issues of our time.
Our hometown perennially appears on national rankings that laud 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 status as a top college town.
