The thing you'll hear most from incoming students is, "As soon as I was on campus, I knew this is where I wanted to go." Champlain’s campus is one of the most aesthetically pleasing campuses in the country. It has been highlighted nationally for its attention to detail, starting with the Welcome & Admissions Center in Roger H. Perry Hall, which underwent major restoration in 2010. Champlain has planned to expand its student life facilities (IDX Student Life Center was built in 2006) called the Hauke Center CCM Division expansion. In the summer of 2012, the College finished construction on Juniper Hall, one of three new sustainable residence halls to be completed by 2014.
The majority of the residence halls is renovated Victorian mansions that are well-maintained with unique character. Each year, more are renovated to have modern amenities like central air. Champlain was built in the ideal location in Burlington, giving students the best views of Lake Champlain, especially from the third floor balcony of the modern Miller Information Commons (library). There is currently plenty of space for 2,000 students, but there can never be enough high-tech, state-of-the-art facilities for the Champlain community to share. Champlain will be steadily expanding and renovating until it reaches its 2020 vision.
