Health & Safety

For a copy of the Champlain Abroad Parent Handbook, please email the Office of International Education.


Student safety is a top priority at Champlain College. The Office of International Education makes a concerted effort to ensure student safety, while avoiding unnecessary restrictions on student exposure to the culture in which they are studying and living. At Champlain, an experienced International Task Force is ready to deal with emergencies, and has action plans in place for crisis situations.

In the event of an emergency, please contact campus security at (802) 865-6465. For After hours emergencies, call Safety & Security at (802) 343-4242.

During the semester or year abroad, on-site Resident Directors are in regular communication with the students and the Burlington staff. Students receive detailed health and safety information during the on-site orientation, pre-departure orientation in Burlington, and in information packets sent to students by mail.
