Welcome! We would like to give you a brief introduction to what your MiddCard ID will do for you. During your four years you will find that using you MiddCard will be an important aspect of your daily life.
The MiddCard is an official form of identification at Middlebury College. Students are required to carry their identification card at all times. The card qualifies a student for all privileges afforded to College ID holders, allows students to identify themselves to College officials, and gives them access to residence halls controlled by the Enhanced Access System.
