Students and Supervisors: please read the Summer Student Employee Handbook for details regarding summer employment for Middlebury College students. Important information is also provided below.

Every student hired to work for Middlebury College between May 22 and September 8 must complete and submit a 2019 Summer Student Employment Agreement to the Student Employment Office by 5pm on April 17, 2019.  This form is required for ANY AND ALL summer jobs regardless of whether the student requests on campus housing or not and must be completed by the student and the supervisor(s)/faculty mentor(s) hiring the student.  To qualify for a student position you must be registered for the term. Please allow time for all parties to complete the form.

Note: 2019 graduates can NOT work in a student position and may NOT live in student housing. Please visit the staff job opportunities page on the college website for available staff positions. For information on hiring a recent graduate please contact Human Resources at

Find a Job

Click on the "Find A Job" link to the left of the page to search for on campus summer opportunities (additional jobs will appear as they become available).

Campus Housing

On May 9th all  students who have submitted an Employment Agreement will receive a Housing Questionnaire.

On campus housing is $80 per week and covers housing and activities fees. You will be assigned a room based on availability.

Students are eligible for on campus housing only if they work at least 30 hours per week and are enrolled Middlebury students or are a student from another undergraduate college here for the purpose of summer research and being paid by Middlebury. Students are only eligible for housing during the time they are working and they must be employed the entire time they are on campus. 

Housing may begin no earlier than one day prior to beginning work and may end no later than one day after completing work.

The earliest students can move into summer housing is 1 PM on Tuesday, May 28. As of that time, touchpad codes will be displayed on their StarRez portal.

All summer jobs with on campus housing must conclude by August 21, the end of summer housing. Summer job extensions/early fall arrivals previously approved by the Student Employment Office are the only exceptions.  Supervisors: see the Job Extension/Early Arrival Request Form.
