Campus information

The College overlooks the Passumpsic Valley and Burke Mountain. There are eight academic buildings, nine residence halls, a dining hall, two gymnasiums, the Samuel Read Hall Library, and the Alexander Twilight Theatre. Outside you’ll find two playing fields, a baseball and softball facility, basketball and volleyball courts, tennis courts, a 6,000-square-foot skatepark, 18-holes of disc golf, a terrain park, high and low ropes course, and cross-country running trails. Lyndon is rightly known as “Vermont’s adventure recreation campus.”

The hill-top campus sits astride three ponds. Dragon Pond is spring-fed and stocked with rainbow and brown trout and used extensively for course-related scientific work. Library Pond is for anyone with the inclination to skate, float, splash, or fish (catch-and-release). In the winter months, Fountain Pond produces Lyndon’s iconic fountain mountain—a column of ice students use to practice ice climbing. It is also the focus of the College’s new Veterans Park.

Lyndon’s 195-acre campus is in the heart of the Northeast Kingdom —thereal Vermont.
