University of Vermont Off-Campus Housing Guide When to search

Don't be lazy if you're looking to live somewhere you'll enjoy in Burlington. Students at the University of Vermont often begin their off-campus housing search almost immediately after the beginning of the fall semester. Many students are contacting landlords in the months of September and October, nearly a full year before they're looking to move in. The amount of students searching vs. the number of options there are close to campus can make it competitive. If you're hoping to find a place as close to campus as possible, you'll want to get started in September. If you don't mind a longer commute, it won't hurt to wait until after Winter Break, as there is a secondary surge of students contacting landlords as the year trickles into Spring.

Rent In Burlington

The average rent in Burlington is considered by students to be pretty high, especially if you're hoping to live downtown. However, the social appeal and independence you get from living off campus can be well worth it. You should be able to find 3+ bedroom houses or apartments for under $700 per person. However, if your budget is tight, keep in mind that living with roommates or choosing a place a bit further off campus can shave a considerable amount off of your monthly rent.

Here's a breakdown of average rents per person, per bedroom
