We invite you to join us for Fall Family Weekend, scheduled for Friday, October 8, through Sunday, October 10

Spend a weekend enjoying Vermont and our beautiful campus with your student. Cheer on the Panthers at athletic events, meet faculty and staff, and learn about the opportunities available to your students. 

Visit this web page and the Calendar of Events to see what we have planned for you. We’ll be adding many more events over the next few weeks, so please check back in early October.  

We look forward to seeing you! 


  • Vaccinations Required
    To ensure the health and safety of our community, all visitors to campus must be fully vaccinated. Please register here to let us know that you are planning to attend Fall Family Weekend and that all eligible members of your party are fully vaccinated. You may be asked to provide proof of vaccination while on campus. Children under age 12 may accompany their vaccinated family members.

    This year, most Family Weekend activities will be held outdoors. Campus buildings, including dormitories, will be open to families. However, well-fitted face coverings must be worn indoors, and we ask that you minimize the time spent inside buildings. Face coverings are encouraged outdoors when in groups where distance cannot be maintained and/or where sustained or prolonged close contact with others is unavoidable. You may choose to wear face coverings at other times as well.

  • Join Us at the Welcome Center
    Please check in at the Fall Family Weekend Welcome Center when you arrive. There you can pick up a campus map and talk with College staff members. The welcome center will be in a tent outside McCullough Student Center on Friday. On Saturday, weather permitting, President Laurie Patton will speak at Alumni Stadium, and the welcome center will be at the stadium. In case of rain, it will stay under the McCullough tent.

    Related visitor and campus information including masking updates can be found on the Vermont Department of Health and Middlebury Campus Guide websites. In addition, you can learn about any changes to the guidelines at the welcome center and on the Campus Status webpage.

  • Lodging and Dining
    Here is a list of local establishments to help make your visit as enjoyable as possible. Please note that many restaurants are experiencing a severe staffing shortage, which has had an impact on hours of operation. Not all changes to service hours are reflected on restaurant websites. We recommend that you call ahead to the establishments to confirm what will be open during your visit.
