The Campus

Champlain Regional College was founded in 1971 and named in honour of Samuel de Champlain, the first governor of New France. He was a man whose accomplishments reflect the strength of his intellect, the breadth of his imagination and the quality of his judgment.


Located in Quebec, Canada, Champlain Regional College is a public post-secondary English-language educational institution which is composed of administrative offices in Sherbrooke and three campuses: Champlain-Lennoxville in Sherbrooke, Champlain-St. Lambert in St. Lambert, and Champlain-St. Lawrence in the Quebec City area.


Champlain Lennoxville was opened in 1972. It is located in the rolling hills of the Eastern Townships on a campus which it shares with Bishop’s University, in the bilingual borough of Lennoxville (population 5,800).

Since the vast majority of students come from outside the Sherbrooke-Lennoxville area, a 317 bed apartment-style residence complex provides the comforts and privacy of residence life.


The fact that Champlain Lennoxville is located in a scenic rural setting has proven to be very attractive to increasing numbers of students who seek an alternative to having to continue their post-secondary education in an urban environment. As a CEGEP located on a university campus, Champlain Lennoxville offers its students complete access to university facilities. Classrooms, library, laboratories, residences, sports complex, health clinic, and dining facilities are shared by university and college students.
