The Arabic House

91 Franklin St.
Middlebury, VT
The Arabic House is where upper-level Arabic students can live to improve their language skills. Living at the house entails signing a language pledge similar to that of Middlebury's summer school. This pledge obliges the student to speak only Arabic while in the house. The house is a place where students of Arabic can come together with the resident native-speaking teaching assistant. The house acts as a learning center not only for the residents, but also for the rest of the Arabic students who drop in on occasion to practice their language skills and get help with homework. The house also features a kitchen and a common room.  Click here to view pictures from recent Arabic House events.
If you are interested in applying to live in the Arabic House you may submit an application by visiting the College’s housing webpage (go/housing) and navigating to the “Interest Houses” link on the left side bar.  An all-student email will be sent in advance of the spring term application process for residency for the following year.  Be sure to carefully consider your application; should an offer be extended and you accept, your commitment is final.  Be sure to only commit to one housing program, i.e. Residential Life, Social or Interest House, SuperBlock, etc., for any one term - Fall, Winter, or Spring.
