Miller Center at Lakeside

This three-story office building was built in 2010 and the college occupied it in January 2011.  The building is 39,552 GSF with 36,754 total occupied space and houses the departments of Finance, People Center, Advancement, Marketing, Information Systems, Champlain College Online and the Teacher Apprenticip Program on the upper floors. The ground floor houses our Emergent Media Center (EMC) and eSports arena.

The building has a stair tower element and entry on the northeast corner that is a focal element from Lakeside Avenue.  A similar stair tower is repeated on the south elevation of the building at what is considered the main building entry.  The south entry and its covered pedestrian plaza are located to provide convenient and safe access from a busy shuttle stop and the parking lot.  Included in the design is an open rooftop patio enclosed by railings on the 3rd floor southwest corner of the building that is used as an outdoor space by its occupants.

Renovations were completed in 2013 on the first floor for an EMC expansion. The expansion allowed the EMC to house all of its existing and new programs within one open, collaborative space. This includes the Emergent Media Center's production studio, with staff, faculty, undergrad, and graduate fellow work stations, a conference room and an interactive gallery. The former EMC staff and conference room area will be home to Champlain's MakerLab - a rapid prototyping innovation space that will provide courses for students and have a public 

Renovations were completed in 2022 for the new eSports Arena in the previous Maker Space lab on the ground floor. This arena provides state-of-the-art equipment and furnishings for our Varsity eSports programs.
