There's nothing "average" about the residence halls at Champlain College. We never get tired of touting how our first-year students are all housed in one of the 20 Victorian-era mansions that ring the central campus. Many Champlain students opt to live in the mansions all four years because they love these gorgeous homes so much.
On this page, you'll find an overview of all our housing options (after all, you'll be here for four years, so you might want to know what other residence halls are out there!). You'll also find step-by-step instructions on how to fill out the all-important Housing Preference Form, as soon as you can, starting March 1, 2019.
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.
