Academic Year Arrival & Departure Dates

Students are responsible for verifying the accuracy of their housing and arrival date information in advance of their arrival on campus on BANNERWEB

Students may not be on campus outside of the posted dates unless they have received special permission from their commons dean or been invited to participate in an approved college program and their housing records have been updated to reflect that change. Students are required to depart from campus 24-hours after their last exam. Students remaining on campus past official departure dates are subject to College sanctions and fines. 

Early Arrival Information

Under certain conditions, students may be approved to return to campus before the fall official move in date. This special permission is granted by the Early Returns Committee due to participation in a campus job, MiddView, student group, athletics team or Residential Life Staff. 

Students should plan to arrive on campus after 9:00 AM on the approved date. 

Keys may be picked up from the Department of Public Safety. Students who have been approved for an early arrival and subsequently delay their return should notify their coordinator, group leader or team coach about arriving after the officially approved time.  

Students residing in locations with TouchPad Locks (Forest, Coffrin, Meeker, Munford, Gifford and 51 Franklin) will be able to view their new combination in their BANNER/housing page as of 9:00 a.m. on the approved arrival day.

Students are required to verify the accuracy of their housing and arrival information in BANNER/housing page prior to arrival on campus.  Concerns about this information should be directed to the group coordinator or team coach.   

In advance of the academic year, College services are at a minimum.  Those services that are open are primarily preparing for the arrival of the First Year class and MiddView and may have restricted hours.   

Residential Life staff members will be involved in training and may not be readily available for assistance. 

Please note that Orientation activities are restricted to First Year students and invited participants. 

Permission to stay on campus is restricted to the approved individual.  Middlebury College students who are not approved, and guests, are not permitted.  Please do not provide access to roommates and common spaces of houses and suites.  There is a significant fine ($400 per day) for violating this policy.

Social functions of any type may not be held.  Any parties, on campus or off, will be considered a conduct violation. 

Students approved for an early arrival who are involved in any conduct violation during their stay will be removed from housing immediately and face College disciplinary action, regardless of the reason for the early arrival.
