Champlain College Unveils Residential Campus
Champlain College students were welcomed back to campus this fall beginning the new school year with a major amenity that has been lacking throughout the College’s 136-year history: a residential campus. Champlain College’s intimate campus is nestled among the stately historic homes which comprise The Hill neighborhood of Burlington, Vermont. To draw Champlain students on campus and to live near the core campus, CBT was challenged to create context sensitive residence halls that fit the neighborhood fabric while reinforcing a strong campus identity.
The multi-phased, 370-bed Residential quadrangle project consisted of adding three residence halls – Juniper, Valcour and Butler Hall, a pedestrian spine that links the core campus and and “The Quad” which is created by the three new and existing residence halls and offers an outdoor space for year round activities, such as the college’s annual “Rail Jam.”
