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. 

Summer of 2017: Please be aware that downtown Middlebury is undergoing significant construction to replace two rail bridges. If you are coming to the Admissions Office via Route 7 South (including Boston) or Route 7 North (including Burlington airport), you will need to use the Cross Street Bridge to reach campus. Please also allow extra travel time given possible construction delays. 

Information Sessions and Tours

Our information sessions will be available twice daily, Monday - Friday, at 9:30AM and 1:30PM. Tours will follow at 10:30AM and 2:30PM. 

Saturday morning information sessions and tours run from July 8th - November 11th.  

Register here for an information session or campus tour.

If you would like to visit with a group of 10 or more, fill out our group visit request form at least three weeks in advance. Please be advised, your request is pending approval by the Office of Admission. Visits are subject to the academic calendar and the availability of admission staff and student tour guides.

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.
