Northern Vermont University: One University, Two Unique and Vibrant Campuses

Our campuses are as diverse as the students who call this region home. But both feature: 

  • strong academic programs that feed curiosities and develop capable adults ready for success
  • gorgeous landscapes that inspire
  • top-notch sports (Division III teams plus club sports) and outdoor pursuits 
  • on-campus and off-campus activities and events for sheer pleasure—concerts, theatre, films, skiing, riding and biking, and more!

As an NVU student, you’ll enroll at either our Lyndon or Johnson campus but can take classes at both, on campus and virtually through our online and telepresence classrooms.
So you get: 

  • two times the faculty and two times the depth and breadth of expertise and experience.
  • two times the opportunity to collaborate with peers.

Upon graduation, you’ll have access to a vast alumni network of Lyndon and Johnson graduates all over the world to help you put your degree to work right away!

NVU Johnson

Our Johnson campus, designated by the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges (COPLAC) as Vermont’s premier public liberal arts institution, offers an immersive, high-impact, liberal arts experience that prepares you to thrive in an ever-changing world.

Cultural exhibits and performances abound on campus, along with outdoor opportunities and physical pursuits right outside your door. The town of Johnson is a short walk from campus, and Jay Peak, Smuggler’s Notch, and Stowe Mountain Resort offer top-notch skiing & riding, as well as mountain biking off-season, a short drive away.

One University, Two Athletics Teams

If you’re an athlete who wants to compete at the varsity level, you’ll play for the team on your campus—the Johnson Badgers or the Lyndon Hornets. Our Division III teams are part of the North Atlantic Conference. As a Hornet or a Badger, you’ll even play each other!
