How to Get Here, Where to Stay, and What to Do

We’re excited to share the beauty of the Lamoille River Valley, Green Mountains, and Northern Vermont in early summer with you.

Driving Directions

NVU-Johnson is located at 337 College Hill, Johnson, Vermont 05056.

Vermont Route 15 goes to the town of Johnson, where the campus is located. When you arrive in Johnson, turn onto Pearl Street, cross the bridge and go straight. (Your maps app may direct you to turn on School Street, but don’t do it!) Just over half a mile up the hill, the campus entrance will be on your right. Campus parking information is available here.

Other Ways to Arrive

There is no public transportation option from the train or bus station or the airport to Johnson.
