Important Revision to 194 St. Paul Street Housing

Dear 194 Residents: 

We need your quick response! The public health emergency Champlain is managing is changing each day, and government restrictions are increasing to protect safety and health. 

Given these changes, we are reducing the number of students staying in Champlain housing wherever it is possible for a student to get to another safe location by this weekend.  Please understand that to manage our campus safely, effective on Sunday, 3/22 at noon, the card access of 194 St. Paul residents will be restricted to those who have received an approved hardship exception using the updated process below

We understand this is a difficult time and we want to support you even as we do our best to reduce risks of a campus public health emergency. Your health and safety, and that of our community, remain the top priority for all of us.


If you are currently home with your family, or staying somewhere other than your assigned Champlain residential space, please do not return to 194 St. Paul Street at this time. If you have items at 194 St. Paul that you need in order to be successful with remote instruction, please email for help making arrangements to be sent those items.


If you have a safe place to go and do not need assistance getting to that location by this weekend, please let us know when you are departing Champlain housing by emailing You do not need to move out, but you should be sure to take all items you will need for the period of remote instruction, even if that period extends beyond April 6.

If you previously requested permission through the initial Housing Registry process and are asking to remain at 194 St, Paul, complete a new request to stay in 194 St. Paul Street.  Please complete the “Housing Registry Updated 194 St Paul (Spring 2020)” on THD (The Housing Director) no later than Friday, March 20 at 8am if you are: 

  • A student who has a hardship that prevents you from going home or to another safe location. Transportation help and technology help are available if needed.
  • An international student 


  • Deadline to submit your updated hardship request: Friday, March 20 at 8:00 AM
  • Prorated Credits: Per President Laurie Quinn’s email from March 13: “Champlain is actively planning to offer prorated credits for campus student housing and meal plans, given recent changes related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will be determining the amount(s) of prorated credit(s) during the week of April 6, by which date we expect to issue updated guidance about the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester.” 194 St. Paul residents will be eligible for prorated housing cost credits.
