Generator is located in the Annex of Memorial Auditorium, 250 Main Street, Burlington VT, 05401. The front entrance is located on Main Street to the left of the BCA Clay and Print Studios.


Generator is open to affiliate and general members during posted hours to give the most access. Non-member students of our programs will have access to the space during their scheduled course times. Studio members are free to use the space 24/7/365.

Monday – Friday, 11am – 9pm
Saturday & Sunday: 11am – 7pm


Parking, generally, is available behind the facility, adjacent to the library, along Main Street, and in the two public lots (one, outdoors and metered, at intersection of Main and South Winooski Avenue; the other a covered, mostly attended lot under Courthouse Plaza and accessed on South Winooski Avenue between Main Street and King Street).

Hints: Sundays and evenings after 6pm are always free at meters. We recommend the brown meters, as they give you 38 minutes for every quarter.

Walking, busing, biking, and carpooling is always encouraged!
