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. 

All first-year students begin their college life in one of our 21 beautifully restored Victorian-era mansions that surround campus. Many students find their distinctive charms so appealing they choose to stick with mansion life for years.

Returning and transfer students may also choose from among our contemporary suite-style residence halls on campus and in the surrounding Hill Section. Just a short walk—or free shuttle ride—from campus, our deluxe apartments at 194 St. Paul Street offer close proximity to the Church Street Marketplace and amazing waterfront views in downtown Burlington. Many of our transfer students choose Lakeview Hall, which features a convenient campus location and a welcoming transfer community.

You'll find a welcoming and supportive environment that builds friendships and puts you at the center of it all, with easy access to your classes, a workout at the gym, a study session at the library, a stroll along Lake Champlain, and a quick trip to Burlington's shops and restaurants or waterfront.
