Welcome, Class of 2028.5! Congratulations on your acceptance! We are looking forward to your arrival in February 2025.

 Below, we’ve shared a broad overview of Orientation to help you prepare for your arrival to Middlebury.

When is Move in Day for Spring Arrivals? 

  • Move in for spring arrivals is Wednesday, February 5, 2025. Students should arrive to campus between 9 AM-12 PM. Specific details about the arrival process such as directions, housing assignments, and parking will be shared in January. 
  • Students participating in early arrivals programs such as International Student Pre Orientation with the ISSS, may have an earlier move in date. Please reach out to these offices for information regarding schedules. 
  • All students, including those participating in early arrival programs, will participate in Orientation, which also begins on Wednesday, February 5, 2025. Orientation will take place the remainder of the week, ending on Sunday, February 9. Classes begin the following Monday, February 10. A detailed schedule of Orientation will be shared in December. 

Are there events for Families during Orientation?

  • Families who may miss events taking place on Wednesday, February 5, 2025 due to their students participation in early arrival programs, will have the opportunity to attend events offered by those offices. 
  • A detailed schedule of family events will be shared in December.

When can I expect to hear from Orientation? 

  • Communication will be sent to your Middlebury email address. You can expect to hear from our Orientation team beginning mid-May. From there, starting mid-October, you’ll begin receiving regular communications from our team. At that time, you’ll also begin completing your New Student Onboarding Course. This course will connect you with the necessary tasks you’ll need to complete through the fall prior to arrival, such as those needed for housing assignments, course selection, and more.
