Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.


Keeping our Norwich students and community informed and safe.

Effectively immediately, members of the Northfield community may use the university’s trail system on Paine Mountain for outdoor recreation. The campus facilities, including the Sabine Field track remain closed to the public.

While using the university’s trail system on Paine Mountain, community members are required to follow all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/Vermont Health Department guidelines including limiting group size to two people, physical distancing and wearing face masks.

Public access to the university’s trail system will remain in effect through Sunday, Jan. 10, 2021, when we anticipate students will be returning to campus for the spring semester. We are grateful to everyone on the Norwich campus and in the Northfield community for your role in keeping us all safe and supporting our in-person college experience for our students in 2021.
