We’re Bringing Champlain to You With Virtual Tours & Visits

Explore everything Champlain College has to offer—right from the comfort of home.

Take a Virtual Tour of Campus

Stepping foot on the Champlain College campus is an incredible experience. Nestled in the beautiful Hill Section of Burlington, you can see all the way across Lake Champlain to the Adirondack Mountains. Historical Victorian-era houses blend with ultra-modern student centers, like the Center for Communication & Creative Media, right in the heart of campus. Students often gather in the evening at the top of our library, the Miller Information Commons, for the best sunset view in all of Burlington. Just imagine what it will be like to catch up on your reading and see jaw-dropping panoramas every time you look up from your book or laptop!

But don’t take our word for it—stop by for a virtual visit and check it out for yourself! Champlain’s virtual tour takes you through every corner of campus you’ll need to navigate during your first semester. You can take a virtual walk through your new home and stop by the IDX Student Life Center (a place to meet for meals with friends and a view of the Lake, fitness classes with great instructors, and nightly improv or open mic sessions). Or, tour the Game Studio with its six state-of-the-art labs where you can bring all your best ideas to life. Explore residence halls, student quads, academic buildings, and the library, too.

Amazing views. Stunning campus. Check out our virtual tour here!

Attend Virtual Events

Campus may be closed, but events never stop! For prospective and current students alike, there’s always something virtual happening at Champlain College. 

Planning on visiting Champlain for an Information Session? Attending a Virtual Information Session lets you absorb all the information you would during our on-campus version. During the session, you will learn more about our majors, discover what the the Upside-Down Curriculum can do for you, hear about our amazing student life experience, and more! Virtual Information Sessions provide answers to all of your questions about the Champlain College experience. 

You won’t believe the caliber of the work on display during the the Game Studio at Champlain College’s Senior Show. It’s just one of the reasons Champlain consistently ranks in the Top 20 Game Design Schools by The Princeton Review.

For current (and curious prospective) students, virtual events like the Game Studio Senior Show (streamed on Twitch) and Commencement can’t be missed. The highlight of many Champlain students’ academic careers, these events celebrate the accomplishments of Champlain College seniors and are sure to inspire a few happy tears.
