Academic and Special Interest Houses
Updated for 2014-2015 Housing Process
Academic Interest Houses are residences where residents pursue a common academic interest and share the fruits of that interest with the campus community. In addition, Middlebury also supports a number of Special Interest Houses whose focus is centered on a specific theme outside the academic arena. Oversight of these houses is the shared responsibility of the Office of the Dean of Students and the academic (in the case of Academic Interest houses) or administrative (in the case of Special Interest Houses) department sponsoring the house.
Rising sophomores, juniors and seniors are eligible to reside in Interest Houses.
Each house has an application process and chooses its own residents. Please use the information below to identify the appropriate contact should you be interested in a program.
Interest House rosters for the 2014-2015 academic year must be finalized and submitted by Monday, March 3, 2014. Please check with the house contact to see if space is available for the Winter/Spring or Spring Terms.
