Welcome to our campus community! Enrolled participants in the summer program will attend a required two-day orientation on Saturday and Sunday, May 17 and 18, prior to classes beginning on Monday, May 19. You will have the opportunity to meet other students in the program, be introduced to various campus services, and be made aware of campus and residence hall policies and procedures.
The Residential Experience
Our campus is a 24-hour living and learning community where our students get involved, develop lifelong friendships and become better citizens both on campus and in society.
The Green Mountain Dining Room is open daily and serves three meals a day with unlimited servings. Einstein Bros. Bagels, located in the student center that is connected to the residence halls, is a great place to pick up coffee, a bagel, other snacks or a sandwich.
You will reside in the Quad Commons Residence Hall, positioned in the center of campus (campus map). Completed in 2013, the Quad Commons is our newest coeducational residence hall. It consists mostly of suites with four single bedrooms with two baths and a kitchenette. A limited number of single rooms with a private bath are also available. The entire building is air conditioned and provides wireless access.
There are a number of residential life staff members here to make your campus life safe, comfortable and rewarding. Our staff includes RAs who are current undergraduate students who live on each floor, a graduate student who supervises the entire building, and full-time professionals including our Director and Assistant Deans of Students who have worked in higher education for many years.
Student Activities & Residential Programming
You will be able to participate in numerous events on and off campus sponsored by our Residence Life and Student Activities Offices. You will have access to our new Dion Family Student Center as well as the Ross Sports Center and Tarrant Recreation Center. Programming will be rich and varied with activities that take advantage of all that Vermont and this unique community have to offer.
Additionally, we are just a few minutes from downtown Burlington and Lake Champlain, great places to visit that hosts many activities and festivals during the summer. Your SMC ID provides free access to CCTA (local bus route) for transportation to and from Burlington, and the rest of Chittenden County.
