Perry Hall Welcome Center

Perry Hall

As it approached its 150th anniversary, the former residence now known as the Welcome & Admission Center at Roger H. Perry Hall had a dramatic rebirth at the center of Champlain College and Hill Section neighborhood life.

Originally built in 1859, Perry Hall was purchased by Champlain College in 2004 and remained vacant until May of 2009. At that time plans to convert the historic building to a new student "Welcome Center" were unanimously approved by the College's Board of Trustees. This set the stage for a ground-breaking ceremony to begin the long-anticipated restoration of the 251 South Willard St. home.

With a re-opening in July 2010, Perry Hall currently houses the College's Admission, Financial Aid, and Student Accounts Departments, as well as the Registrar's Office, Office of International Education and Compass Student Services. In 2018, Perry Hall became the first institutional building to earn a BLUE certification as a watershed friendly building.

Guests of the Office of Admissions may park in the designated lot conveniently located steps from the Roger H. Perry Welcome & Admissions Center, located at 251 South Willard Street. The entrance to the Admissions Guest Parking lot is on the Maple Street side of the Admissions Center.
