Contemporary Residence Halls
All Champlain College residence halls have cable television, wireless internet and access to a shared gigabit connection, and are smoke and substance-free, co-ed communities.
One of our smaller, more intimate residential settings, 308 Maple is home to our campus’ substance free program. Housing only fourteen returning students, all residents of this building sign an agreement to live a lifestyle free from the effects of alcohol or drugs, including those over the legal drinking age. Alternative programming and events hosted by Residential Life staff play a large role in the success of this program.
One of our campus’ most popular living options, Main Street Suites is a favorite of students who desire the privacy of single rooms with the convenience of living on the main campus. Each of the suites has its own common space for students to convene and study or socialize, and includes its own washer/dryer unit. Students in Main Street Suites participate in the meal plan, however, the building also includes a small kitchenette area perfect for making a late night snack.
Juniper Hall is Champlain’s newest facility built in the summer of 2012 (formerly called Tri-Res A during its construction). The building is part of our sophomore year experience, and features all single or double rooms, both a large common area on the first floor and small study/lounge areas throughout, and a ski/snowboard tuning room that is available to residents of all Champlain College residence halls. Juniper Hall is named after an island on Lake Champlain, which is very appropriate as the building features multiple two-story windows looking out onto Burlington’s greatest natural attraction. The building was also designed with the environment in mind, as its construction meets the highest standard of sustainability.
80 sophomore students feel lucky to live in this residence hall located close to the center of campus. Residents love Lakeview’s game room with its pool table and television. There is also a formal living room located on the first floor. There are 39 rooms at Lakeview; many facing west with beautiful views of Lake Champlain. Many student rooms have wood floors and radiant heat, and all rooms are air conditioned. The distinctive wall colors in student bedrooms are very popular.
