  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

What Students Are Saying

3.69 Average Rating
I would give UVM a 8 out of 10. University of Vermont is a great school with a great college town. Just be prepared for the cold winters
Benjamin from Williston, VT
I would rate the University of Vermont very highly for anyone who would like a unique experience in Burlington, Vermont. I have been happy spending time in the town and being at a school that is both small enough to feel like you know the majority of students but also large enough that you can walk to class with the opportunity to meet many new people on the way. I have been pleased with the many opportunities available to me in my past three years at UVM.
