With 21 Victorian-era mansion residence halls to choose from, there's a home away from home for every first-year student on Champlain's campus. If you're set on decorating a fireplace mantel in your room, Whiting Hall is for you. Want something closer to the dining hall? Go with Pearl Hall.
To make it easier, here's our guide to Champlain's residence halls-after all, you'll be here for four years, so you might want to know what other housing options are out there! You'll also find step-by-step instructions on how to fill out the all-important Housing Preference Form.
Housing assignments for Fall 2024 will be available on August 1, 2024.
Living on campus is a rich, rewarding experience and an important part of your Champlain education. Life in the residence halls will help you connect outside the classroom, while the convenient campus location—just a short walk from downtown Burlington and the waterfront—ensures that you have ready access to the shops and services of Vermont's largest city. In addition to the descriptions below, be sure to review our Residential Life FAQ's for answers to important housing-related questions.

How to Complete Your Housing Preference Form?
Can I edit my form after I submit it?
Yes! You may edit your Housing Preference Form as much as you wish before June 1. There is no downside to editing the form; the more information we have, the better we'll be able to pair you with your new roommates!
What if I need to cancel my housing?
We encourage you to be in touch with Housing and Residential Life at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible if your plans for on-campus housing change after you have submitted your Housing Preference Form.

How do I find and select a roommate?
You can do that within THD as well! In fact, you'll be able to create a personal roommate profile and search for other students with similar interests. Individuals who wish to live together must each select one another. Roommate searching is available through June 1. Follow the instructions below to find and select roommates.
You may contact any students you would like to connect with before requesting them as a roommate. Their preferred contact information is in their profile. When you've selected the individual(s) you would like to live with, click "Request Roommate." After a request is sent, the other student must confirm or cancel the request. Once a confirmation is complete, you're done!
Housing assignments will be made by August 1 and will appear on your THD home page.
