The Old Stone Mill is a space for student creators, entrepreneurs, and artists.

We invite you to create. Build a canoe, code a website, edit an academic journal, record your music, test business models, write a book, design clothing, hold a book club meeting, teach pottery, have dinner with strangers, dance, quilt, photograph portraits, rehearse plays.

The premise is simple. We give you the space, and you use it to create something new. All we ask is that your project be nonacademic, self-designed, and respectful of your fellow tenants.

The Old Stone Mill

The Old Stone Mill, formerly located beside Otter Creek at the heart of downtown Middlebury, is now on 82 Weybridge Street, closer to campus.

It acts as an incubator for both entrepreneurial startups and creative projects. The Old Stone Mill intentionally holds no academic affiliation with the projects of its tenants. This is a space where creators and innovators of Middlebury College can come together under one roof to share new ideas, explore creative passions, and collaborate in a supportive environment.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. If you are accepted, there will be required orientation for use of 82 Weybridge Street.
