Start checking out your residence hall options today.

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, 2020.

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.


  • Victorian-Era Mansions // Once occupied by some of Burlington's most prominent citizens, our 20 restored Victorian-era mansion residence halls house all first-year students.
  • Upper-Class Students // While many upper-class students choose to continue to live in our on-campus Victorians, some choose our other residential housing options:
    • Contemporary // Our contemporary, suite-style accommodations are right on or within walking distance from campus.
    • Apartment-Style // We have deluxe apartments just a few blocks away, with shuttles running from early morning to late at night.
    • Off-Campus // For those looking for comfortable living off campus, we have resources to help locate nearby housing.

Want to find and select a roommate?

By creating a roommate profile you can search for other students with similar interests. Individuals who wish to live together must each select the other(s). Follow the instructions below to find and select roommates.

  1. Complete a Roommate Profile by selecting the 'Personal Information' tab at the top of the screen and then clicking 'Roommate Profile' from the drop-down menu. (Maintain the default setting 'Make Profile Private: No' to enable roommate selection.) Complete the Profile so that other students can learn more about you, then click 'Update Roommate Profile'.
  2. To search for a roommate, select the 'Room Selection' tab, then 'Roommates/Suitemates' from the drop-down menu. Select Term 'Fall 2020' and click 'Submit'. Use the 'Advanced Roommate Search' section to identify other students with lifestyle choices and interests similar to your own. Students who meet your search requirements will be displayed.  Students who have already identified a roommate can search for that individual using the 'Simple Roommate Search' fields. (Only students who have completed a Roommate Profile will appear in the results.)
  3. You may send a message to any students you would like to connect with before requesting them as a roommate. Once you've selected the individual(s) you would like to live with click 'Request This Student.'
  4. Once 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 5, 2020 and will appear on your THD home page.
