All returning Champlain College students that are in good standing with the Office of Community Standards may apply to live in 194 Saint Paul Street. Students that are currently on residential or disciplinary probation are not eligible. Applications are reviewed by the Department of Residential Life and generally approved in the order in which they are received. However, preference will be given to full-time (enrolled in at least 12 credits) and third- and fourth-year students.

Yes! Students who want to live together should indicate this on their applications.  However, each bedroom has its own housing contract that students must enter into individually. 

Link to this FAQ

If a resident is not able to fulfill the term of the housing contract due to study abroad, withdrawal or dismissal from the institution, they may identify a replacement who meets the eligibility requirements for Champlain College housing and 194 Saint Paul Street and request to re-assign space to that individual. The Department of Residential Life must approve the request for housing contract obligations to transfer. If the resident is unsuccessful in identifying a replacement or a proposed replacement is not approved, the Department of Residential Life will work with the remaining resident(s) of the apartment to identify and pull-in another eligible student to fulfill the remainder of the housing contract. If this is unsuccessful, the Department of Residential Life will fill the vacancy.

A resident who does not fulfill the housing contract outside of these circumstances is financially responsible for the full term (11.5 months for non-graduating residents or 9 months for graduating residents) of the housing contract, whether or not the assigned bedroom space is occupied for the duration of the term.

Link to this FAQ

Housing contracts are for an 11.5-month (50 week) term and run through the first week in August. Graduating seniors will vacate by noon on the day after graduation and have a 9-month contract.

If a student wishes to participate in a study-abroad semester, they may recommend a replacement for the Spring term (or the College will find one).  The student will still be responsible for the remainder of the 11.5-month contract / summer portion of the lease and may not transfer the lease to anyone else.
