Great Services that Make Living Easier
The way we see it, anything you can do to make life easier so you can focus on your studies is a good idea. Here are a few services that provide simple solutions to questions like, "Can I please get someone else to do my laundry?" and "Where will I keep my bike and my longboard when it's snowing, and my snowboard and gear when it's not?"
Laundry Facilities & Laundry Service
All Champlain College residence halls have coin-operated washers and dryers, which also accept the Champlain College Cash Card (with the exception of 371 Main Street and and Spinner Place). Students may check the LaundryView internet application to view the status of washers and dryers in connected laundry rooms across campus.
If you are not into doing your own wash, another laundry option is E & R Laundry and Dry Cleaners, which provides a pickup/drop-off service (this is a paid service, not included as part of housing cost). Information about this service is sent to students during the summer prior to move-in. For the 2015-2016 flyer click here.
For more information, visit E&R Laundry and Dry Cleaning online or call (800) 243-7789.
Great Bedding Packages
The extra-long beds provided in Champlain College residence halls are designed to give every student a great night's sleep. These extra-long mattresses require specially-sized sheets, comforters and blankets. We highly recommend the Residence Hall Linens program, which the College has been offering for more than a decade. This specialty retailer provides a varied selection of specially-sized linens guaranteed to fit every residence hall bed and last until graduation. Residence Hall Linens also provides many of the other necessities your new room will require such as extra-long thermal blankets, pillows, extra-long comforters, storage solutions and extra-long mattress pads.
Orders can be placed online or by calling (800) 957-4338.
Remote Storage Options
For students wishing to store their belongings over break periods or simply looking for some extra storage space for items they don't use on a daily basis, Kilburn and Gates Storage offers storage, as well as pick-up and delivery options for Champlain College students.
For more information, please contact Daniel McFadden at (802) 862-4100.
Another useful service in the area with similar options is All College Storage.

Champlain College partners with OCM to provide our students with final exam care packages at the end of each semester during the academic year (Fall and Spring). Parents now have the option to order the packages online directly through the OCM site and upload a greeting card photo, which will be included in the package.
