COVID-19 Update: Campus Visits Are Currently Suspended

Since March 10, Middlebury College’s campus visit program has been suspended because of the rapid spread of COVID-19. While we can’t currently welcome you to campus for in-person information sessions and campus tours, we invite you to have a Virtual Visit and let us know that you’re interested in Middlebury. We’ll put you on our mailing list, and we’ll let you know when we resume our in-person visit program.

Planning Your Visit

You should plan to spend several hours at Middlebury College during your campus visit. Our in-person visit program includes the following:

Information Session (one hour)

Monday through Friday
10:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start of your session.

Saturdays (July 13–November 9 only)
10:00 a.m.

Information sessions are led by an admissions representative. You’ll learn about Middlebury’s academic, residential, international, and extracurricular opportunities. Please register at least two weeks in advance, if possible.

Campus Tours

Monday through Friday
11:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

Saturdays (July 13–November 9 only)

Our campus tours are a great opportunity for you and your family to explore some of Middlebury’s campus with a current student as your guide.

Please register at least two weeks in advance of your visit, if possible.

Class Visits

A class visit can provide an inside look at what Middlebury’s academic life has to offer. Consult our course schedule to choose a class (we recommend choosing a course at the 100 or 200 level). We ask you to email the professor in advance to ask permission to visit, and arrive a few minutes before class to confirm your attendance.

Group Visits

Groups of 10 or more are welcome, subject to the academic calendar and availability of Admissions staff and tour guides. If you would like to visit with a group, please fill out our group visit request form at least three weeks in advance. We will review your request and do our best to accommodate you.

Accessibility

Middlebury’s campus is ADA accessible. If you or someone in your party requires accommodation (e.g., wheelchair accessible tour or ASL interpreter) please contact Admissions at least two weeks in advance.

However, for the well-being of our visitors, students, and staff members, pets (with the exception of service dogs) are not permitted in Emma Willard House.
