Welcome to Champlain College's Department of Residential Life

We're located in Skiff Hall and our department is open from 8:30AM–5PM, Monday to Friday. You may stop in any time during our open hours, but making an appointment is recommended to make sure that we can meet with you. Come see us for questions about residence halls or leadership opportunities on campus; we routinely meet with students to help them identify and access on and off-campus resources.

If there is an emergency or crisis situation outside of Residential Life office hours, please contact Campus Public Safety (CPS) at (802) 865-6465.
