Residential Life and Student Activities


Finding Your Place on Campus Begins by Feeling at Home

At Champlain, you'll find Victorian-era mansions with curved staircases, carefully restored woodwork, and expansive windows looking out over Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains. Champlain's unique residence halls are completely different from anything you might encounter at other campuses.

If you are a Current Student looking for information about housing selection, applying to be a Resident Assistant, or looking for any other information from the Office of Residential Life and Student Activities, please go to the Residential Life under the Current Students section of the site.
