COVID-19: Essential Information

McCardell Bicentennial Hall keys and card-swipe access are issued by Cathy Ekstrom in MBH 330.

Faculty and staff who have offices or labs within the building are provided with keys enabling them to access needed spaces. Typically, these will include a departmental submaster, which, in addition to unlocking departmental spaces, will also open the building's copier room (621) and the liquid nitrogen and supplementary cylinder gas storage closets on the first floor. Faculty and staff are automatically added to the building's card swipe system, which provides building access and after-hours access to the Laboratory Stores.

Student keys and building access must be authorized by a faculty member.

The McCardell Bicentennial Hall parking lot is designed for the use of faculty, staff, and visitors except where specially designated spaces are reserved for specific other purposes such as commuter students. Parked vehicles should display the appropriate Middlebury College parking decal, available from Public Safety, to avoid being ticketed.

Visitor parking passes are available from Cathy Ekstrom in MBH 330 or from Public Safety.

Parking is prohibited at all times along the drop-off loop at the west entrance to the building, as well as anywhere in the loading dock area.

During events, when all normal parking spaces are occupied, faculty and staff may park along the west side of Bicentennial Way.
