Experience Champlain

We often hear students and families say they knew from the moment that they stepped foot on campus that Champlain was it—they were #ChampBound.

And we understand why! Our home on the hilltop reflects our approach to education. When you visit, you’ll notice how our distinctive Victorian-era buildings—steeped in history—have been thoughtfully cared for and restored through the years. You’ll notice they stand side-by-side with new, cutting-edge, and visually striking facilities that honor our campus’ tradition, while moving us leaps and bounds into the future. Our campus, like our community, is as welcoming as it is unique. We can’t wait to show you around!

Explore Campus

We invite you to explore our campus and hometown, and see why so many students fall in love with the community — and the views. Can’t make it in person? See our beautiful campus in action through a virtual tour.

We look forward to sharing everything that makes Champlain’s academic experience one-of-a-kind.

Every season is beautiful in Vermont, which means there’s never a bad time to attend an Open House at Champlain College. And it’s the best option if you truly want to know what it’s like to be a student at Champlain.

All of our Open House events give you the opportunity to

  • learn about majors and programs directly from faculty, deans and current students
  • explore the Champlain campus and city of Burlington including the lakefront and Church Street, and
  • get guidance from our Admissions and Financial Aid staff on what to expect when you apply.

Open House events include campus tours, information sessions, complimentary lunch, and more!

When I did a campus visit, I really loved Burlington being alongside Lake Champlain and it felt like the perfect environment for me to thrive in since I like the outdoors.
