Fall Term Housing
Updated for 2014-2015 Housing Process
Middlebury College has a great variety of housing options for students - single, double and triple rooms, suites, small houses, apartments, townhouses, interest houses, Superblocks and Social Houses.
Each Spring term, housing is allocated for the following academic year. Options such as the Wellness House; Academic or Special Interest Houses, Superblocks or Social Houses; and living off-campus each have application processes. Later in the Spring, usually the beginning the first week of April, all students who did not receive housing as a part of the above mentioned housing selection processes will receive their Random Number so that they may participate in the Online Room Draw or Live Commons Sophomore Draws.
With so many options it can be a little confusing. Questions are welcome so please feel free to contact us if you need a little help.
Students should make room draw plans based on friendships and not on the hope of living in a suite or other particular type of housing. In our experience, students who make arrangements based on a low random number to share a space with students who are not close friends and/or have different lifestyles often end up being dissatisfied with the arrangement.
Please remember that all commitments and assignments made during the Fall Term housing processes are final. If you choose to withdraw from a particular housing assignment after you have committed you will be housed by the Residential Systems Coordinator.
Manipulation of the Room Draw process is a serious matter and could result in college discipline.
Please check back occasionally as additional information will be added as it becomes available.
The Housing Selection process begins in January with the following:
- Wellness House
- Residential Life positions
- Social Houses
- Academic Interest Houses
- Off Campus Lottery
Members of Social Houses may not participate in any other housing process unless the House can fill all their beds by the deadline.
Students may only submit their names on one type of housing application, i.e. Super Block, Social House, Off Campus application.
All students awarded a bed in any of the above processes may not participate in subsequent Fall Term housing processes and will not receive the random number email message.
Students approved for an off-campus study program are ineligible for all Fall Term housing procedures and will not receive the random number email.
Students eligible to participate in either the On-Line or Live Sophomore draw will receive an email regarding their Random Number, (see Calendar for date).
Random Numbers are assigned separately for Junior/Senior and Sophomore groups. Sophomore numbers are relevant to a student's commons, i.e. an Atwater and a Brainerd sophomore could both have the number 25.
