Returning and Transfer Student Residence Halls

Second-, third-, and fourth-year students can live in one of Champlain's beautifully restored Victorian-era mansions or in a bright and spacious contemporary residence hall. These welcoming and well-cared for buildings are all conveniently located on or near campus, just steps from Burlington's pedestrian-friendly downtown and waterfront. Transfer students are encouraged to consider Lakeview Hall, which houses a thriving transfer community.

Imagine living in your own private suite with a handful of close friends. You'll enjoy peace and quiet, incredible natural light, and amazing views in these apartment-style pods. Feeling social? Hang out in one of the main common areas where you can relax by a beautiful gas fireplace, watch a movie on a big screen TV, bring your console and play games with friends, or cook a meal in a fully equipped kitchen.

Built with the environment in mind, these new residence halls all meet the highest standards for LEED Gold certification. Some even use 100% geothermal energy for heating and cooling. All Champlain College residence halls have ultrafast Wi-Fi, live and on-demand streaming TV and movies, and are smoke- and substance-free, co-ed communities.

The best thing about living on campus is the tight-knit communities that are built within the residence halls.
