A message from the Dean of Students

As a member of the university community, it is important for all students to be informed about their rights and responsibilities while on or off campus. Please carefully review the following information:


Codes of conduct outline student rights, policies, and the procedures the University will follow if a student is allegedly involved in a policy violation. Students are responsible for knowing the policies related to their behavior.

Campus Demonstrations

Within the University setting as within society at large, the exercise of one's rights must be tempered by recognition of the rights of others. The discovery of new propositions or new solutions may be followed by passionate advocacy. Such advocacy must not, however, compromise the ability of the University to provide safe access to its educational programs and activities.

Computer, Communication, & Network Technology Acceptable Use 

The University of Vermont provides a wide array of computing, communication, networking, and other information technology resources to students, staff, and faculty to advance the educational, research, and land-grant missions of the institution.
