Visiting Middlebury

Emma Willard House

Come and see us!  Choosing a college is a big decision and we hope you will be able to take some time to explore our community here in Vermont.

Middlebury College welcomes visitors at the Admissions Office in the Emma Willard House at 131 South Main Street in Middlebury. Parking is available in the lot next to the Admissions office or in the lot behind the Center for the Arts (campus map) a short walk from our office. 

Important Note: There is significant Summer construction on Rt 125 between Ripton and Hancock, Vermont. If you are traveling from the Boston area or other points east, this construction will cause delay in your trip to Middlebury. We recommend taking an alternate route, such as taking I-89N to Exit 1, Quechee, and following Rt 4W to Rutland, to Rt 7N into Middlebury.

Our information sessions begin at 10AM and 1:30PM. The tours leave Admissions at 11AM and 2:30PM. The morning information session time will change to 9:30AM and tour at 10:30AM for the summer between July 5th-September 12th.

Saturday morning information sessions start July 9th at 9:30AM followed by the 10:30 tour. The information session on Saturday after September 12th will be at 10AM with the tour at 11AM.

Register for an information session or campus tour.

Admissions will closed on the Forth of July. We encourage you to select a time when we have both information sessions and tours.

If you would like to visit with a group of 10 or more, please send your request to, preferably at least two weeks in advance. Group visits are not confirmed until you hear back from our office.

If you need any special accommodations, please contact Admissions at least two weeks in advance. 

Visiting a class

Prospective Students are welcome to visit classes. Please consult the course schedule and keep in mind that classes at the 100 or 200 level are most appropriate. Please arrive a few minutes before class, or email the professor in advance to ask permission, as there may be an exam planned or other reason why it would be best not to have visitors that day.
