Life on Campus (Mandatory)

This Event is Mandatory for First Year Students.

Start off your first full day as a student by learning even more about UVM. You’ll also get a chance to meet lots of staff members they give you inside tips and tricks to making the most of your new life at school.


UVM’s Opening Weekend is a weekend designed just for incoming UVM students to help them connect with their peers, learn the ropes at UVM, and helps students acclimate to their new environment at college.  Opening Weekend begins with Friday’s First Year Move-In, and concludes with Twilight Induction.


UVM’s Week of Welcome begins the moment Opening Weekend ends, kicking off  a week long welcome celebration for all class years at UVM.  Mingle with your new friends or meet some new faces. Check out a Baseball game, go paintballing, or laugh it up at our annual comedy show – there’s loads to do as you navigate what life at UVM looks like for you.
