Who is qualified to live on campus for Summer 2015?
All current students who need to be in Burlington for the summer will be able to live on campus. This includes students who are taking classes at Champlain College, working on or off campus or have internships. Residential Life staff will verify that students are enrolled in Champlain College classes or have a job/internship. Please note that all College policies apply during the summer, and violators may lose the privilege of living on campus. The deadline for completing a summer contract is April 16. You will be able to sign up for summer housing beginning March 30 online at this site. Go to the Summer Housing Contract.
Where will we be placed if living on main campus this summer?
This summer's main campus building will be Juniper Hall. The building has a full kitchen, so students living on campus for the summer will not be required to purchase a meal plan.
What if I am required to take a CORE class and need to live on campus?
Students enrolled in a CORE class for the summer will be housed on main campus for the 6 weeks during the class and are guaranteed a space if they meet the April 16 contract deadline. They will be charged $120 per week, plus class tuition, for that period.
What if I am working in Burlington this summer?
Champlain College offers a special program for sophomores and juniors (enrolled full-time for Fall 2015 semester) who will be working for a Chittenden county based employer this summer. Students need to work at least 20 hours per week for at least 2.5 months at a job or internship which requires knowledge and skills gained by means of courses related to your major in order to qualify. You will need to register your employment with Career Services and meet other summer housing requirements. Click here to register your employment. Contact your career advisor if you have questions about this option.
Students employed by Champlain College during the summer can also live on campus. They must be employed for 32 hours a week.
If your employment does not qualify for the employment option through Career Services, you may still live on campus but must be contracted for at least 12 weeks and be scheduled for an average of 32 hours per week.
What are the rates for living on the main campus for the summer?
Rate for summer employee (32 hours a week of work required for regular or campus employment or 20 hours per week for the Career Services option) = $120 a week
Rate for full-time student = $120 a week plus tuition (minimum 2 courses each summer session).
What if I cannot leave between spring classes ending and summer classes beginning?
All students contracting for summer who need to stay on campus from the end of classes through summer will be allowed to. Students may, if necessary, stay in their current spaces until the May 9 graduation date. At this time they will be able to move to their summer assignment. Please note that meals during Senior Week are not included in the Spring Meal Plan. Non-graduates staying during Senior Week may eat in the dining hall but will need to pay for each meal at the time they eat. Summer classes begin on May 11.
Who gets to live in Spinner Place this summer?
Students who have completed the Housing Selection process and are signed up to live in Spinner Place for Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 will have the option to move into their fall assignment in May for the summer rate of $1,464 ($366 per month). Students will not be allowed to contract for only a portion of the summer. Students living in Spinner Place need to meet the qualifications above, and complete their summer contract by the April 16 deadline. These contracts should not be completed before attending Housing Selection and securing your space for next year. Students who choose to live in these locations for the summer should be aware that the campus shuttle does not run during these months, but the CCTA buses will be running at no cost to Champlain students with their Champlain ID. Parking at Spinner Place will be available for an additional fee. Students going abroad for Fall 2015 will be allowed to contract in one of these buildings for summer, but will be required to live in that building upon their return to the college for Spring 2016.
