COVID-19: Essential Information

February Orientation

Feb Leader Welcome 2015

Dear Members of the Class of 2024.5 entering in February,

Welcome, and congratulations on your acceptance! While much of the future is unknown as a result of the COVID19 pandemic as of now, we are looking forward to your arrival in February of 2021.  Much can change between now and February and so the information on the website will be updated regularly.  For now, we will be posting information based on our current hope that February Orientation will remain unchanged.

While full information about your February 2021 orientation will be posted later this fall, newly admitted students often find the previous year’s information a helpful reference. We've therefore left much of the 2020 content accessible in these pages. 

For any student joining us in February, whether you are a new student, transfer student or an exchange student, below are some February Orientation basics to help you start your journey here.

  • The February Orientation program is five days long
  • Before arriving to campus, be sure to download the Middlebury College app which will house our February Orientation schedule. For instructions on downloading the app, click here
  • Orientation will be conducted remotely this year. Students will be able to move-in on February 21 or 22.
  • During orientation you’ll start to get to know people in your incoming class, meet with your advisor, and register for classes.

Use the links below and to the left to learn more about what to expect during Orientation. If you have questions you can email us at or call us at 802-443-3006.

First-Year Feb Pre-Arrival Checklist

Please read the descriptions of the February Pre-Arrival Checklist to become familiar with your due dates. There are many things you have to do before you get here.  Beginning in May 2019, you'll be able to access a helpful checklist. 

February Orientation Trips

During Feb Orientation you will have the opportunity to connect with your peers, participate in various activities, and get to know other students at Midd. However, due to current circumstances with Covid19, our Feb Orientation Trips will not take place this year. We know this is an activity that many of you look forward to as part of your arrival to Middlebury but these decisions have been made to help keep you and our community safe during this time.


You will receive several mailings and emails from the College over the course of the next few months. We will post all of those documents here for easy reference.
