At Middlebury College, residential housing is based on the philosophy that students work together with their room, hall and dorm mates, to create a safe and supportive living and learning environment. Living on campus is a core part of the Middlebury experience.
Residential Life coordinates housing placements and room draw processes for all students throughout the academic year. Click on a link below for more information about student housing at Middlebury.
