COVID-19: Essential Information
We know a student's transition to college can be a stressful time for families as well.  This section of the website provides resources designed to anticipate and answer your questions and to help you support your Middlebury student during the next four years.  We look forward to welcoming you as well as your student to the Middlebury College community.

Click the links below for advice and information that will come in handy as you prepare for your student's transition to Middlebury.

While full information about Fall 2019 or Winter 2020 orientation will be posted in the spring and fall respectively, families of newly admitted students often find the previous year’s information a helpful reference. We've therefore left much of the 2018/2019 content accessible in these pages.

Orientation for Family Members

During the first two days of new student Orientation, we offer an optional Orientation for family members, designed to introduce families to college resources and help with the transition.

Resource Guide

Eager to acquaint yourself with the College's campus? Anxious about what services are offered on campus and in town and how your student can access them?  Click 2019-2020 Student Resource Guide.pdf for a downloadable copy of this year's guide.

Family Mailings

Families of incoming students will receive specific mailings throughout the summer. We post all of the documents from the mailings here for easy access.

FileRecipes from Home

A new program from our Dining Services on campus wants your incoming student's favorite recipes from home, so that they can be prepared in the dining halls for students to enjoy a taste of home at their home away from home. If your family has a signature dish, please submit it using the form provided above.
