Important Planning Resources and Information

Plan your trip to Campus here: Campus Map, Directions, Trip Planning

We advise that you leave and arrive on campus as early as possible on the morning of Saturday, April 27th. We have heard reports of road construction on Rt. 12 between Northfield and Montpelier so if you are coming to Norwich from the North, you may need to take I-89 and get off at the Northfield exit (exit 5) instead of taking Rt. 12. Please check below for the most current construction updates and any possible delays. 

Check roads, traffic, and construction here:
