Lyndon Outdoor Adventures

Explore North at Northern Vermont University-Lyndon

Northern Vermont University's Lyndon campus, located in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, is an adventure sports mecca —and it starts right on our campus. You’ll find an indoor climbing center, eighteen holes of disc golf, a 6,000-square-foot skatepark, high and low ropes course, and a winter terrain park. Travel a mere ten minutes from campus and you’ll arrive at world-class mountain biking and 2,000 vertical feet of great skiing and riding at Burke Mountain.

Naturally Beautiful

One of the first things you'll notice when you visit NVU-Lyndon is the sheer physical beauty of our surroundings and the campus. Lyndon’s is a compact, modern, and well-equipped campus perched atop Vail Hill overlooking Burke Mountain and the Passumpsic River Valley. Our corner of Vermont, the Northeast Kingdom, has been designated as a geo-tourism destination by National Geographic—the first region in the U.S. to achieve that distinction.
