Microsoft Home Use Program

Microsoft Office

Middlebury College has a contract with Microsoft that allows for home use to certain groups at the college (currently employed Middlebury undergraduate faculty and staff, as well as current Midd undergraduate students.  It also covers currently employed faculty and staff at MIIS). 

This license does not cover installs for programs like the summer Language Schools, Bread Loaf School of English or Off-Campus Study.  It also does not cover Emeriti or Alumni. 

This new contract works differently than in the past.  You will need to go directly to the Microsoft Home Use Program website.  For those who qualify there is more information at our Microsoft Home Use Program Page.  Not everyone will have access, so if you feel like you are eligible for the home use install of MS Office and cannot get to the Microsoft Home Use Program page, contact the Technology Helpdesk (802.443.2200)

Need Software Installed?

Staff and Faculty

Staff and Faculty are able to have software installed on their college-issued computers.  What can be installed depends on the machine type and operating system.  To request a software install, email us at with the computer's Middlebury College asset tag number and operating system, the software being requested, and if another version of the software already exists on the computer.

How can I see and install software I have been granted access to?

The college has a software repository which currently lives in the Software folder on Middfiles.  You can take a look at what is available by connecting to the Software folder on Middfiles, accessible on both Windows and Mac computers. Each software folder may contain installation instructions.
