There are a number of ways to travel to the Goddard campus in Plainfield, Vermont. Driving is one of the most convenient methods, as it gives you more flexibility over your travel schedule. However, driving is not an always option for everyone attending a residency. We encourage those attending to carpool. For those not driving, you can travel to Vermont via train, bus, or air.
Goddard College is located in Central Vermont in the town of Plainfield, approximately ten miles east of Montpelier, the state’s capital, and fifty miles southeast of Burlington, the state’s largest city.
