Living on campus is a core part of the Middlebury experience. Our residential housing is based on the philosophy that students working together with their roommates, neighbors and hallmates create a safe and supportive living and learning environment.
Residential Life coordinates housing placements and room selection processes for all students throughout the academic year. Below you will find more information about student housing at Middlebury.
First-Year Living Communities
New students generally reside in traditional style rooms within their first-year communities:
Sophomore Living Communities
As sophomores, students participate in the housing selection process. Students can select roommates and live in a variety of suite-style or traditional rooms based on their randomly assigned selection time.
Junior and Senior Living Communities
Junior and senior students may choose from the range of housing options available to them across campus. Students have the opportunity to live in small houses, townhouses, suites and traditional style rooms during the housing selection process. All properties that are available will be shared prior to room selection processes starting.
