When it comes to location, Burlington College has it all. Our campus is located in Vermont’s Queen City, which has been rated the one of the “most livable cities” in the U.S. The city of Burlington is nestled in a valley along Lake Champlain and offers picturesque views of the Adirondacks to the west and the Green Mountains to the east.
Not just a place to live, but a way of life
It has all the charm of a small New England town, but is also a vibrant college town, which provides a rich array of, cultural venues, entertainment and outdoor activities. Burlington’s downtown, filled with sidewalk cafés, restaurants, street markets, clubs, galleries and shops, is the place to meet up with friends.
Don’t let Burlington’s quaint appearance fool you though; it is also a city that loves to celebrate its culture, achievements, diversity, and uniqueness and will come up with any excuse for a festival. Mardi-Gras, the Discover Jazz Festival, First Night, the Winter Festival, the South End Art Hop, and the Ramble in the Old North End are only a few of the events offered during a year-round arts scene unrivaled anywhere!
Burlington prides itself on creating an environment based on free-thinking, cultural diversity, social responsibility and environmental awareness. The area is home to many socially responsible businesses, such as Ben & Jerry’s, Magic Hat Brewery, Green Mountain Coffee, Seventh Generation, Burton Snowboards and Vermont Teddy Bear. The community, as a whole, is continually challenging itself to become better stewards of our planet.
Just a short drive away
For adventurous spirits, the Green Mountain state offers an abundance of outdoor activities. The Long Trail, scuba diving shipwrecks and some of the best wind-surfing in the northeast are close-by. Burlington is home of Burton Snowboards, where snowboarding was born, and only short ride away are several big-mountain ski resorts, including Stowe, Sugarbush, Bolton Valley, Jay Peak, and Killington. If you are looking for a road trip, Vermont has many small towns, scenic roads and breath-taking spots to explore. If you are missing the big-city life, you can be in Montreal in only an hour and a half, Boston in four hours, and in New York City in less than six. Burlington International Airport, our gateway to destinations unknown, is only a few short minutes away.
