Williston Residence Life

The Williston campus is conveniently located near I-89 and minutes from Burlington, the state’s largest city. Burlington offers a wide variety of art and performance venues, restaurants, and shops, and is situated right on beautiful Lake Champlain. Outdoor adventures in the Green Mountains and at Bolton Valley resort are a short drive, while the Adirondacks are accessible via car ferry across Lake Champlain. Williston, too, offers a variety of dining and shopping options. Students interested in a day or weekend trip to surrounding cities can catch the Ethan Allen Express at the station less than ten miles from campus and be in New York City in seven and a half hours, while Montreal is just a few hours by car.
