Card Care and Replacement

It is important to keep your card with you at all times and protect your card from damage as much as possible.  In the event that your card is lost or damaged, contact the Department of Public Safety Office as soon as possible.   If you find your card, you will need to bring your MiddCard to the Access and Parking Services Office in Public Safety inorder to reactivate your card.  Please note that you will need to keep your card in a safe place while you are away from campus. You will need your card when you return.

Card Access System

The Enhanced Access System uses proximity cards, (access cards) issued by the Department of Public Safety to authorized students, faculty, staff and guests, to control access to buildings. The system will electronically unlock doors designated and marked as Entrances when an active card with privileges for that building is presented to the card reader mounted beside the door.


The MiddCard is an official form of identification at Middlebury College. You should protect the card just like a credit card, driver's license or other valuable piece of identification.  You are expected to take reasonable precautions to prevent unauthorized use. The cards are the property of the college and should be presented or surrendered to college staff upon request. More information about MiddCard polices can be found in the College handbook.
