Vermont College of Fine Arts is moving some programs to Colorado, may sell some campus buildings

July 13, 2022
The Montpelier school is ending on-campus programs and will move some programs to Colorado College in Colorado Springs.

Vermont College of Fine Arts will no longer host students on its Montpelier campus next year and is considering selling or leasing some of its 11 buildings. 

The plan will move some programs to Colorado College in Colorado Springs, reports VTDigger

In the past, most Vermont College of Fine Arts students spent a total of about two-and-a-half weeks during the year on campus for workshops, performances and lectures. That time was split between two semesters: one residency in the winter, the other in the summer. 

Starting next summer, the school will hold its summer residencies at Colorado College, and winter residencies will take place virtually. The school hopes to add international residency programs as well.

The move will enable Vermont College to bring all of its students together in an updated space.

In addition to the move, the college is looking at selling and or leasing most of its buildings. 

The college plans to keep its administrative offices in College Hall. Administrators have hired a real estate firm to decide what to do with the remaining 10 buildings on campus.
