Residence Halls at Champlain

What are the residence halls at Champlain College like? We hear this question a lot from prospective students. They look and feel like homes—grand, stately mansions and ultra-modern apartments—all with breathtaking views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains. They're halls that foster a sense of community, and they're situated just steps from classes, downtown Burlington, and all the places you'll need (and want) to be. 

You'll have your pick of the finest residence halls, starting with our 21 beautifully restored Victorian-era mansions that surround the campus. All first-year students begin their college life in one of these homes, but many students find their distinctive charms so appealing they choose to stay for years.

For more modern surroundings, you'll find contemporary suite-style residence halls on campus and in the surrounding Hill Section or in deluxe apartments with waterfront views in downtown Burlington—just a short walk from campus.
