In the format of username@middlebury.edu, your Middlebury account provides access to authorized services and resources, such as e-mail, the wireless network, cloud storage on Google and OneDrive, printing, software installations, BannerAdmin, Oracle, Zoom video conferencing, and more.  You should protect your account with a strong password and keep it safe, so it is known only to you.

Tips for a Successful Midd Password Reset or Change


  • Always turn off all mobile devices before you begin!  You’ll avoid account lockouts due to attempted connections using your old password.
  • Whenever practical, tackle password resets or changes while you are on the Middlebury College network.

I KNOW MY PASSWORD and want to change it

Faculty & Staff using a college-issued computer ON the campus network

The preferred method for a password change when you know your current password is to use your computer’s operating system, as follows.

Important Note: If you have multiple computers, we recommended using your macOS computer to change your password.

For Windows, press Ctrl + Alt + Delete, then choose “Change a Password.”

For MacOS, open Systems Preferences, then Users & Groups. Select your user account, then click the Change Password… button.


ALL STUDENTS; also Faculty & Staff who are either OFF-campus or NOT using a college-issued computer

Change your Midd password using this website http://go.middlebury.edu/changepassword.

Once you return to campus it may be necessary to restart your computer connected to a network to update computer password. macOS will require a wireless password be updated.
