Life in Vermont & New York at The University of Vermont Health Network

Life in Vermont & New York

If you enjoy being active and outside, you'll love living in Vermont or upstate New York. As the seasons evolve throughout the year, a tremendous variety of activities presents itself and contributes to our healthy lifestyle. There's always something new here to experience - you just need to get out there and give it a try.

Each season brings new possibilities:


We have access to some of the best alpine skiing and snowboarding in the world. Many areas offer special season pass deals for students and residents and within roughly an hour, you can find yourself on the slopes of famous resorts like Stowe, Sugarbush, Jay Peak, Titus Mountain and Lake Placid, to name just a few. Cross-country skiing, backcountry skiing and riding, snowshoeing, ice climbing, ice fishing and snowmobiling are all popular activities and are easily accessible.

Spring and Summer

In the warmer months, this area has some of the nicest weather you'll find anywhere. Perfect conditions to take advantage of the 2,000 miles of trails, 3,000 bodies of water, and 1,200 miles of rivers that the Adirondack region boasts.

There's always an adventure, with legendary forts, museums and endless activities. Lake Champlain, Lake George, and Saranac Lake offer pristine environments for fishing, sailing, kayaking, and swimming. Visit Burlington and Plattsburgh to experience picturesque lakeside towns. Enjoy a scenic ferry ride, connecting Northern New York and Vermont.


Our spectacular foliage arrives as the hills come alive with color. This color season lasts a long time, changing first in the northern parts of the state and near the mountains, and last in the south and by the lake. There are many fall activities throughout the state, including craft and antique shows and apple festivals.

Relocating to Vermont or New York

Moving is a life-changing decision and that's why The University of Vermont Health Network has partnered with Urbanbound. UrbanBound provides the support you need to make your relocation a complete success — from benefits to vetted suppliers and budget management. Through our partnership with Urbanbound, and their digital platform, you'll be able to keep track of your move, including tasks and key milestones, view your relocation benefits 24-7 and book vetted suppliers directly on the platform. In addition, you'll experience greater control over your relocation budget and finances. Individuals interested in relocating will be connected with Urbanbound through the UVMHN recruitment team.

Vermont Welcome Wagon

VWWP is a volunteer-run initiative which connects newcomers to Vermont, with existing residents, to help you get acclimated and access to resources. The concept is simple – each “Participant” is paired with two to three “Hosts” for one-on-one meetings. Over a coffee, beer, or a little Vermont adventure, participants are welcomed and learn ideas about making the most out of life here. There is so much going on across our great state and we want to help people get plugged in to it all. Hosts and Participants sign up to join the program in their local area via a short online form. Hosts and Participants are then paired up based on location, interest, and availability. To learn more about the Vermont Welcome Wagon, connect with the UVMHN Talent Acquisition Team.

When you live in Vermont or Northern New York, you experience the feeling of community and the high regard for quality of life.
