Why a plan to build more UVM student housing in Burlington has been stalled for months

The University of Vermont, the state’s largest college, only guarantees housing for its undergraduate students for the first two years. That leaves about 5,000 students to find apartments in Burlington, which like the rest of Vermont, is experiencing an historic housing crunch. Municipal officials think boosting on-campus housing for UVM could help alleviate some of the pressure on the local housing market. And UVM has broken ground on a graduate student housing project in neighboring South Burlington. But a proposal to increase student housing in the Queen City has been stalled for months.
