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.
Students are guaranteed housing but not a specific type of room, or location. Please note that Middlebury College cannot honor requests for special housing assignments based on religious or cultural practices.
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.
