Bookstore, Mail & Printing Services (Reprographics)
Middlebury College Bookstore
Proctor Hall Lower Level
The Middlebury College Bookstore is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Saturday and Sunday hours vary and will be posted at the entrance to the store or e-mailed for special events. Middlebury College Virtual Bookstore is open 365 days a year, 24/7, where you can order Middlebury imprinted clothing and gift items.
The Bookstore is owned and operated by Middlebury College, and the store staff are Middlebury College employees. Any revenues earned by the Bookstore are used to cover operating expenses. Surplus is placed in the general fund of the College to offset other College expenses.
All items, including textbooks, are sold at or below the manufacturers or wholesaler's suggested retail prices. Used books are sold at 25% less than the new price. The store will not knowingly sell above suggested retail prices. Buy and recycle your books here and help the College reduce our carbon footprint.
Required textbooks and course supplies are available at the store both new and used, rental, and now digital textbooks on some titles. We also sell supplies and Middlebury clothing and gift items.
We accept cash, checks, and Visa/MasterCard as forms of payment. The Bookstore has Gift Cards available to purchase for family and friends. Join our Customer Loyalty Program and earn points with your purchase and redeem your points for a gift card.
The Bookstore buys back textbooks daily. When you are finished with your book bring it to the Bookstore and we can determine the current buyback value for your book. The best time to sell your books for the most money is during finals week each semester, when we will then be buying books for the upcoming term. During the semester we offer a wholesale price for your books if a wholesale value is available.
The Bookstore welcomes suggestions, comments, complaints, and questions, which should be directed to the store manager. Input from the community is helpful to the staff in its continuing efforts to improve both service and the selection of products offered.

The Middlebury College Bookstore also operates the Monterey Virtual Bookstore: http://bookstore.miis.edu .
Student Mail Center, McCullough
Mailing Service, Lower Forest East
Middlebury College maintains a campus system for the pickup and delivery of U.S. Postal Service mail and interdepartmental correspondence, as well as a mailing service, which assembles and processes all classes of mail into the U.S. Postal Service system, along with package shipping via United Parcel Service. Urgent items are sent via Federal Express, UPS next day, or U.S. postal express. The Student Mailroom does not save magazines over the summer break.
Student Mail Center, McCullough
Hours: Students have access to their boxes from 7:00 a.m. to midnight daily. The business window is open:
Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Saturday 9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
We strongly encourage students to close and lock mailboxes to avoid theft.
If you're sending a package to the college, we recommend using a service you can track, such as UPS, FedEx, insured, certified or registered mail. United States Postal Service delivery confirmation is not traceable.
Students, faculty, and staff may purchase postage stamps for their personal use at the College Store or MiddExpress.
Incoming and Interdepartmental Mail
The Student Mail Center receives and distributes U.S. Postal Service mail, UPS packages, and items delivered by various other courier services. It is also responsible for the pickup and delivery of interdepartmental mail. Items addressed to faculty and staff are delivered to designated locations daily, Monday through Friday, as scheduled by the Mail Center supervisor. On campus mail delivery and pick up will occur once a day except for the following buildings: Emma Willard, Meeker House, Munford House, Service Building, Sunderland, and Old Chapel.
Students' mail and packages are delivered to their boxes in the Mail Center.
On-campus mail should bear the person's name, box number or department, and building. Incoming U.S. mail should bear the full address:
MC Box # or Department and Building
Middlebury, VT 05753
Mail Forwarding and Handling Procedures
Academic Year Breaks: First-class and parcel-post mail and magazines will be held. Newspapers and catalogs will be recycled.
Summer Break: First-class and parcel-post mail will be forwarded. Magazines, newspapers, and catalogs will be recycled.
Departure from Campus: First-class and parcel-post mail will be forwarded for one year. Magazines, newspapers, and catalogs will be recycled.
Items delivered by services other than the U.S. Postal Service will be accepted and held during academic year breaks but will be refused and returned to the sender, with the recipient's home address noted on the package, during summer break and after departure from campus. (Exception: Packages are held pending the arrival of new or returning students.)
Mail received for a person who has terminated or is on leave should have the forwarding address put on each piece and be deposited in the outgoing mail. Do not batch these pieces in one large envelope for which additional postage must be paid. When you know the forwarding address, contact the Mail Center supervisor who will give you a supply of preprinted labels.
It is the responsibility of each individual to inform his or her correspondents and publishers of a change of address, whether permanent or temporary.
Mailing Service, Lower Forest East
Outgoing Mail and Packages
Mailing Service processes all outgoing mail for the College, eliminating the need for postage stamps. All mail to be metered should be bundled, with foreign (including Canada) and Middlebury mail on top. The departmental Index to be charged should be marked in the upper right corner of the first piece in each bundle. Bundles should be securely banded. Keep interdepartmental and stamped mail separate from mail to be metered. Only mail pertaining to College business can be processed through the postage meter. Personal mail should bear postage stamps purchased by the sender. All mailings that require labeling, inserting, and/or bulk mail processing should be scheduled with the manager of Mailing Service. Packages related to College business can be shipped via UPS during regular business hours. Personal packages can be brought to Mailing Service from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. You must pay for this service with a MasterCard or Visa card. No cash will be accepted.
Faculty members who are officers of legitimate professional academic organizations may use the College Reprographics and Mailing Service for the organization's official business (e.g., preparing mailings, etc.). College business always takes priority, however, and all work should be planned well in advance. Organizations will be billed through the Middlebury faculty member, who must be authorized to obligate the organization.
Mailing Service offers end of year shipping in May at a designated location which will be published the first week in May to all students.
