Japanese House

Japanese House

20 Adirondack View
Middlebury, VT
20 Adirondack View is currently the Japanese academic interest house, where students of Japanese 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 Japanese while in the house. It is a place where Japanese students can come together with the resident native-speaking teaching assistant. The house contains three singles and one double in addition to the TA's room, a living room area, dining room area, and kitchen where the students, especially the Middlebury Asian Students Organization, take full advantage of cooking Japanese food.   

If you are interested in living in the Japanese House, please read the documents  below and then complete the application and return it by email to Kyoko Hayasaka Davis, kdavis@middlebury.edu.  Questions about the house should also be addressed to Professor Davis.

If you are interested in applying to live in the Japanese 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.
