Health & Safety: My campus is very safe and secure with little to no incidents of sexual assault happening (to my knowledge.) We have emergency buttons along walkways in case people feel unsafe or for any reason need help.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus. Burlington obviously has some sketchy parts but when venturing around town just always have a friend to walk with. CPS is always a phone call away which is nice. I never hear about any crime on campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The Champlain College campus is a tight-knit community in a residential neighborhood called "the Hill." The neighborhood is quiet and safe, day or night. The street is well-lit, and most of the residence halls are very close to main campus. Walking down the hill to downtown Burlington at night should be done in groups or through the buddy system as a precaution, but during the day, students rarely claim to feel threatened or unsafe. Champlain Public Safety (CPS) has officers patrol by car and on foot at all hours of the day. They also do random rounds through each residence hall to have a more consistent presence in the hall, therefore gaining the trust and respect of students. There are blue-light emergency telephones on campus that can be seen wherever you are. By pressing the button on these phones, you are connected with a CPS officer, and you will be responded to immediately.

On-campus health services are available for illness and injury evaluations, lab studies and diagnostic testing, and health counseling. There is also a sports trainer available in the mornings. Unfortunately, health services are not available for all emergencies, as the hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. For emergencies after 3 p.m. or on weekends, the health services affiliate is Timberlane Pediatric Associates in South Burlington. Students can also go to Fletcher Allen Health Care for emergencies, and CPS will give students rides to the hospital, if needed.
