Housing & Residential Life
Champlain College’s gender-inclusive housing community is designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of diverse gender identities in a supportive and safe residential environment. This community offers students the ability to share a room regardless of their sex, gender or gender identity. These spaces are intended to support students who question constructed identities, including gender.
Students living in the gender-inclusive housing community will grow and learn alongside members who share their interests in social issues, history and legislation surrounding gender-free policy, practices and communities. By fostering an inclusive housing environment, Champlain College can provide students with a community that blends their personal, residential and academic priorities into a cohesive college experience that reflects their holistic selves.
Champlain College is a dry campus which means that no alcohol or illegal drugs are permitted on school property. For those students who are committed to living a substance-free lifestyle, we offer a small intentional community of students who commit to substance-free living at all times. The students living here expect that no substances or effects of substances will be part of their community at any time. The community serves as a safe space for those who choose to live in an environment free from alcohol and illegal drugs. All students signing up for these spaces will be required to sign a contract agreeing to live a substance-free lifestyle, and violations of this contract will result in a student being required to move from the building into another hall. This application will be live on THD in the "applications" tab beginning in February. See Important Housing Selection Dates for key deadlines.Link to this FAQ
Returning students who are interested in living in a gender-free residence hall, please complete the Gender-Free Residence Hall application on THD. A first-year student option is under development. If you have any questions, please email Bridget Grim at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since Fall 2016, we have provided gender-free housing for students to voluntarily live in the same space regardless of gender, sexual orientation or other constructed identities. The Department of Residential Life is continuing to offer gender-free housing in an effort to support a positive campus climate and afford students more options for expressing their identities throughout every facet of college life.
Anyone who violates this agreement may be relocated to another space on campus.
Applications are submitted on THD (The Housing Director).
