Union Institute and University is closing its Montpelier operations and consolidating its Vermont footprint in Brattleboro.
The move, to be completed by June, comes as the four-year liberal arts school reduces its weekend residency programs and relies more on online classes.
The Cincinnati-based school has two campuses in California, one in Florida and will go from two to one in Vermont.
The school sold its Montpelier property — on the campus of the former Vermont College — to the Vermont College of Fine Arts several years ago and had been renting space there since then.
Union spokeswoman Carolyn Krause says students currently enrolled in the Montpelier-based programs will be asked to transfer to Brattleboro or complete their course work online.
