An uncommon place to share common interests...

Located just blocks from downtown Montpelier, Vermont College of Fine Arts hosts hundreds of conferences, retreats, meetings, and special events per year. Our historic campus offers 19th-century buildings surrounding a beautiful campus green, on a hill overlooking Montpelier. Located less than three hours from Boston and two from Montreal, Vermont College of Fine Arts is the perfect location for your next meeting or event.
We have more than 30 meeting rooms on campus, varying in size and style. No matter what type of meeting, we can help you find the perfect space to fit your needs.
All rooms are handicapped accessible, unless otherwise noted.
VCFA offers plentiful and affordable classic New England dormitory housing for large or small parties. Individual dorm rooms share two beds per unit, with desks, lamps and closets. Each floor offers a lounge area, showers and bathrooms. Laundry facilities are available in-house. A minimum of five dorm rooms is required to make a reservation.
The Conference & Retreat Center offers a very flexible policy regarding food service. Guests are responsible for organizing their own food directly with their chosen food service provider. This policy allows flexibility for guests who want to bring their own food, or use a specific caterer. Guests can also have events catered by New England Culinary Institute (NECI), based on the VCFA campus. (Conference guests are not required to use NECI for catering services.)
