Student Full Name [ID#]
Box # Middlebury College
14 Old Chapel Rd
Middlebury, VT 05753

Mailbox information is posted on BannerWeb in August for students arriving in September and in January for students arriving in February. Students have access to their mailboxes from 7 a.m. to midnight daily. The business window has weekday hours from 10 a.m.–4 p.m. and is also open Saturday 10 a.m.–noon in September and February. Postage stamps can be purchased at the College Bookstore and MiddXpress, our convenience store in the McCullough Student Center.

Please do not send packages before August 30.

Medical Insurance

Middlebury requires all students to have a U.S.-based medical insurance policy for medical bills, should they arise. If your family plan will not cover you and you do not have an individual plan, you need to purchase one. Students arriving in September will receive email notifications beginning in July from Gallagher, our student health insurance partner, to either enroll in or waive (with proof of other coverage) the Student Health Insurance Plan. Students arriving in February will be able to enroll or waive coverage starting in November.

Phone Service

Courtesy telephones are provided in all residence halls in common areas and hallways. These phones may be used for emergency calls to 911 or Public Safety, calls to on-campus locations, and local and toll-free calls. Long-distance calling requires a calling card.

Cell Phone Service

Verizon Wireless, AT&T Wireless, and Sprint offer the best reception for the Middlebury area. Prepaid cards are also an option. For details on any company’s coverage, please visit their websites. To check coverage, use the Middlebury zip code: 05753.

Chosen Names and Pronouns

Middlebury recognizes that some members of our community use names other than their legal names to identify themselves. You can indicate your chosen first name regardless of whether or not you have legally changed it—provided that it is not for the purpose of misrepresentation (i.e., inappropriate names or avoiding legal obligation).

Chosen first names that differ from your legal name will be used solely for Middlebury’s internal systems. You can also indicate your gender pronoun(s) (him, her, them, etc.) and name prefix (Mr., Ms., Miss, etc.). If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to Renee Wells at rwells@middlebury.edu.

    A Note to Families about FERPA

    One of the ways in which we reinforce students’ development into mature adults is by emphasizing responsibility and accountability for their behavior. When academic or behavioral issues arise, our deans, staff, and professors work directly with students to resolve most matters. Middlebury College typically contacts families or guardians when students are in situations that seriously impact their status at the College including, for example, discipline proceedings, hospitalizations, serious academic difficulties, and situations endangering health and safety. Each student’s dean will reach out to the parents or guardians under these circumstances. It is not unusual for students to receive academic warnings in their first year while they adjust to Middlebury College requirements.

    Resources are available to help students plan their work, arrange for tutors, strengthen their study skills, or improve their time management skills. At the end of each semester, grades are posted on a secure website to which students have access, and we strongly encourage students to share this information with their families. As you prepare for your student’s college years, it is important to understand that Middlebury College programs are governed by the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). FERPA generally prohibits colleges from disclosing personally identifiable information from student education records without a student’s written consent, unless an exception applies.

    Education records include information such as Social Security numbers, class schedules, grades, and disciplinary records. Exceptions permit disclosure without a student’s written consent for financial aid, for disclosures to other institutions where the student seeks or intends to enroll, in response to subpoenas, in certain disciplinary matters, for health and safety emergencies, and for disclosures to parents of dependent students at the discretion of the institution. See the complete FERPA policy.
