2022 Residency Conference | Monday June 20 to Friday, June 24

All Norwich master’s degree programs culminate in a required, weeklong capstone residency in June at our beautiful campus in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Our bachelor’s degree completion students are welcome to attend and experience what our master's programs have to offer, but attendance is not required. During this transformative week, students present final projects or papers, and solidify friendships and professional connections with classmates and professors. Commencement concludes the week, and all graduating master's and bachelor's students are invited to participate in the ceremony.

Check out the resources and videos below to learn more about all the exciting events that take place during Residency.
