The Conference & Event Center


Dear Champlain College Conference & Event Center Guest,

The Champlain College Event Center team hopes you and your family are staying healthy and well. We understand that the uncertainty around your future event can be disheartening and stressful and we are here to support you in whatever ways we can. This includes rescheduling and discussing alternative options for your event. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and will continue to follow the government's recommendations. Our main focus is the safety of our students, faculty, staff, customers, and guests and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate through these clarifying times.

At the end of last week, Dr. Laurie Quinn, Interim President, announced that the College would remain closed through the end of the semester (May 1). This was a difficult decision for our community and was informed by federal and state guidance. We will not host any events on campus during this time. Events scheduled after May 1st are under active review. We plan to connect with you soon to talk about your summer event and what alternate dates might work for you if we do need to reschedule. Please also feel free to call or email us with questions or concerns. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Warm Regards,

Sue Lindberg


Dear Champlain College Conference & Event Center Guest,

Champlain College is closely monitoring the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. College leadership has been meeting regularly to discuss guidelines and implement recommendations made by government and public health agencies, and plan a response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Champlain’s interim president, Dr. Laurie Quinn, announced yesterday that students will not return to campus next week at the conclusion of spring break and, effective March 23, all Burlington campus courses will be conducted through remote instruction. Remote instruction means that students will participate in courses online from home.

Additionally, events and meetings that bring external individuals or external groups to campus are being virtualized or cancelled, effective immediately.

As Dr. Quinn indicated in her message, the College will make an updated announcement regarding the status of campus and services on Monday, April 6th. For events scheduled at Champlain College through the end of August, we will continue to hold your spaces, and will reassess with an update on April 6th. In the meantime, please feel free to call or email me with any questions or concerns.

First and foremost, our commitment is to the safety and wellbeing of our students, staff, faculty, and Event Center guests. The Conference & Event Center will work with you to reschedule your conference or event for a later date. We will be flexible with the contract terms.

Please rest assured that when we are able to have your events on campus, we will continue to practice preventative actions. Here is what you can expect:

    • Hand sanitizers (alcohol based per CDC recommendation) throughout the buildings.
    • Signs in restrooms showing the correct way to wash hands.
    • Disinfectant wipes at microphones/lecterns.
    • Additional spacing per round table for meal functions.
    • Attendees will be served by catering staff at buffets.

You will find the latest updates from Champlain College on The View. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding.

Kind Regards,

Sue Lindberg
