The Champlain Regional College Residence Complex, located on Winder Street, is within a short walking distance of the campus. The complex consists of 6 buildings with a total of ninety fully furnished apartments of 3 or 4 bedrooms. All apartments are designated male or female with building co-educational and provide a smoke-free environment (Bill 112).

The apartment has a kitchenette with a refrigerator and stove; a dining area with a table, three or four chairs and a set of window drapes; a full bathroom; a storage room and a living room which is furnished with: one couch, one or two chairs (three or four bedroom apartment), one coffee table, two end tables, and a set of window drapes. All living rooms have connections to cable TV. Each building has laundry facilities operated with a residence laundry card and central vacuum system. Each apartment and residence hallway is equipped with fire extinguishers and smoke detectors. Fire alarms are also located in each residence hallway. Access to each building is controlled with intercoms to main entrance and the front doors can only be unlocked either conveniently from within each apartment or with a special building key.

The residence lease, which is governed by the Régie du logement du Québec, must be signed by both the student and a parent or guardian (regardless of the student’s age), and is binding for the term of the lease provided you remain a full-time student at Champlain Regional College – Lennoxville. Residents still officially in attendance at the College cannot break their lease except under extraordinary circumstances. Only students attending the College may live in our residences. Therefore, students that are refused admission to the College must cancel their Residence lease in writing and will consequently receive a refund for amounts paid. Students that have decided not to attend the College and whose written cancellation notice is received by Residence Services on or before June 1 will receive a refund for the first time month’s rent, however, after June 1 it will become payment of the mandatory one month notice. Your rent may be prepaid by semester, by pre-authorized debit, or by cheque on due date of each month. For additional information, please contact residence services either by telephone 819-564-3675 ext 2675 or e-mail residence@crc-lennox.qc.ca.
