A supportive community, a gorgeous part of the world, a chance to do what you love best—that’s life at NECI.
Our campus is our community, which includes the classrooms at 7 School Street, the bakeries at La Brioche and National Life, the kitchens of NECI on Main, and the residence hall up on the Vermont College of Fine Arts (VCFA) quad. Much of your time will be spent learning here and studying, but there are also activities organized by the Resident Life Coordinator, your instructors, and other students, to help you explore the area, participate in new hobbies, and build the NECI community as well.
Montpelier is filled with restaurants, small shops, theaters, intermural sports clubs, parks, hiking trails, and community events that take place all year long. Our students are recognized for their civic engagement volunteering for organizations and often working part-time in the local businesses while they study at NECI. While we consider Montpelier our campus, our home is Vermont and we encourage students to explore well beyond the city limits and discover what else is right in our backyard!
