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 central campus.

Many Champlain students opt to live in the Victorians 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 Selection Preference Form as soon as you can starting March 1, 2018.

The two things you can do to try to get your first choice mansion:

  1. submit your residence hall deposit
  2. fill out the Housing Selection Preference Form as soon as it becomes available on March 1.

The students who deposit first AND submit their Housing Selection Preference Form first get first housing preference. The Housing Selection Preference Form will be available beginning March 1, 2018, at

Contemporary residence halls
If you love living super close to where the action is, but lean toward a more modern style, you’ll have fabulous options for sophomore year and beyond. The three newest buildings—Juniper, Valcour and Butler halls—are all named for islands in Lake Champlain. These keep the look of the traditional residential architecture of Burlington’s famous Hill Section neighborhood by having a public face for the street view “ceremonial” entrances. The main points, though, all face into Finney Quad and feature distinctly modern-style soaring windows that overlook the green space. Our other contemporary residence halls likewise have their own personalities, charm, special features and amenities. Read about our contemporary residence halls.
