Housing & Dining

When each program residency is in session, students have the option to stay on campus. This encourages cohesiveness and a sense of community, both of which are central to the learning experience. 

Dewey Hall in backgroundHousing

Vermont College of Fine Arts offers classic New England dormitory housing for overnight accommodations. Most dorm rooms consist of two beds per unit, with desks, lamps and closets. Single rooms are available upon request. Each floor offers a lounge area and community showers and bathrooms, and each building houses a kitchenette. Coin-operated laundry facilities are available in-house.
