Required Agreement Form
Every student hired to work for Middlebury College during the summer (May 22 through September 6) must complete and submit a 2013 Summer Student Employment & Housing Agreement to the student employment office by April 19, 2013. This form can be found under "2013 Summer Forms" on the left of the page. This form is completed by the student and the supervisor(s)/faculty mentor(s) hiring the student. Please allow time for all parties to complete the form. The form is required for all summer jobs regardless if the students requests on campus housing or not.
Students are eligible for on campus housing only if they work at least 30 hours per week and are enrolled Middlebury students or are departmental guests from other undergraduate colleges for the purpose of summer research.
The earliest students can move into summer housing is May 28. Dorm keys can be picked up from Public Safety after 8:00am.
All summer jobs must conclude by August 17th, the end of Language Schools. Job extensions/early arrivals previously approved by the Student Employment Office are the only exceptions. See the Job Extension/Early Arrival Request form link on the left side of the page.
Room Rates and Meal Plan Costs for Summer Student Employees living on campus
On campus housing $50 per week and covers housing and activities fees. You will be assigned a room based upon availability. The summer meal plan is $50 per week from June 10 through August 17. All student employees housed on campus will be billed for the meal plan. The plan includes breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday through Friday and brunch and dinner on the weekend. All meals will be served in Proctor Redfield. Students living on campus when a meal plan is not offered (before reunion and after Language School commencement) are expected to supply their own meals.
Living Off Campus
Summer student employees living off-campus must also submit a Summer Student Employment & Housing Agreement. Simply choose “No” to the question "Are you requesting on campus housing and meals for the above mentioned employment periods?". Students living off campus may NOT participate in the meal plan unless the student makes special arrangements with dining services. Students that choose to live off campus for the summer are required to depart from campus 24-hours after their last exam and may not return to campus or move into Fall Term housing until September 7th, even with an approved job extension.
All approved mentored faculty-student research positions will be paid on a stipend basis. In order to pay a research student a stipend, the hiring faculty must complete a Summer Research Assistant (SRA) form. This form confirms that the research meets the criteria outlined in the Policies and Procedures for Summer Research Assistants. The form is completed online at the Undergraduate Research Office Website. Click "Summer Research Assistant (SRA) form" in the URO Funding’s and Forms List, or go/SRA.
