You’re invited to visit Middlebury College and experience campus for yourself. Our beautiful location in the heart of Vermont is within a day’s drive of most Northeastern cities and a short flight from many airports. 

Planning Your Trip

We look forward to welcoming you to Middlebury! Here are some tips for planning your campus visit.

  • We encourage you to plan your trip to Middlebury in advance. Our programs require preregistration, and some area lodgings tend to book up quickly. 
  • Our hometown, Middlebury, Vermont, is highly walkable, with eateries, shops, museums, and the 16-mile Trail Around Middlebury (TAM) all a short distance from the center of campus. Burlington, Vermont’s biggest city, is less than an hour’s drive north.
