As the only hotel located on the campus of the University of Vermont, a stay at Sheraton Burlington Hotel & Conference Center puts you in the center of it all. UVM, is a four-year public university which traces its roots back to 1791, making it the 23rd oldest college in the nation and the fifth oldest in New England.

UVM has a long-standing reputation of demonstrating a commitment to fairness and equality. The university was an early pioneer in the advocacy of religious freedom and fairness for both women’s and African-American’s full participation in higher education. Today, with total enrollment of approximately 12,000 students, of which 65% are from outside Vermont, the student body continues to be diverse and well-rounded.
