Undergraduate On-Campus Housing 


If you are studying the 3-semester GGP, you will live in Marsh-Austin-Tupper Hall (MAT) for the duration of your program. You will take an English test during Arrival Week to determine final placement in the GGP. If you are originally placed in a 1- or 2-semester GGP, but your test results place you in the 3-semester GGP, you will move into Marsh-Austin-Tupper Hall.

MAT provides safe and welcoming residential halls for Year 1 and Year 2 students. Living in the heart of UVM campus, undergraduates can look forward to comfortable accommodation, on-site facilities and a vibrant campus life.

You’ll share a bedroom and a kitchen. You will also have access to the community lounge, where you can relax with other students, and to the multipurpose room, which is a quiet place to study.

If you'd prefer to live off-campus you can rent a one-bedroom studio or share an apartment with other students.

"I chose to study in the USA because an international degree gives you a lot more opportunities, and I wanted to study abroad and not do what every other engineering student in Norway does. UVM has an incredible engineering program and a super cool campus."
