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.
