    Fire Safety
    Removing smoke detector batteries and tampering with the fire extinguishers, fire alarms and CO detectors isn’t smart or funny-it’s deadly! Each year, college students across the country perish in residence hall fires. Often, their deaths could have been prevented by properly functioning life safety equipment. Be smart and stay alive!

    There will be a 3 hour minimum cleaning charge of $40.00/hour for an excessively messy hall or room found at the end of the semester or at any time during the school year.

    Tampering with cable television, electric, telephone or other utility service carries a $225.00 minimum charge. All other items that don’t appear on this list will be billed at current labor and material costs. There is a minimum 3 hour labor charge after hours (nights and weekends).

    All prices are subject to change without prior notice. These prices have been prepared by the Physical Plant using the most current information.

Meal Plans

  • Residential students (other than those living at 194 St. Paul Street or on the Montreal or Dublin campuses) are required to purchase the Carte Blanche meal plan, which provides unlimited visits to the Dining Hall and includes $150 Residential Flex dollars for purchases at the EATS food court in the CCM building.

    The cost of the Carte Blanche meal plan for the academic year is $6,700 or $3,350 per semester.

  • Students residing at 194 St. Paul Street or in an off-campus apartment may purchase a meal plan online or contact Compass Student Services at (802) 992-1474 or compass@champlain.edu.

    In addition to the Carte Blanche meal plan (the residential plan outlined above) which is available for purchase, there are three other meal plan options for the academic year. The plans outlined below can be purchased using this form.
