The Facilities Administration unit is responsible for overseeing and managing over 500,000 square feet in more than 10 buildings that support the educational and research missions of the Larner College of Medicine. In collaboration with UVM Administrative Facilities Services, we manage space, new construction, renovations, security and safety on the medical school campus.

Colchester Research Facility
Colchester Research Facility (CRF), was built in 1991, with the Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine occupying approximately half (38,000 GSF) of this building. In 2008, UVM renovated the other half of the building, adding 37,000 GSF to our research facilities. The entire building is approximately 75,000 GSF and contains research laboratories, offices and conference rooms.
