An interior view of the DC offices.
Our offices provide both open and private spaces to accommodate multiple configurations.

Middlebury in DC has two multi-use rooms available, one of which can be split into two spaces.

These spaces can be used as conference rooms, classrooms, reception areas, and event space. We are able to provide a selection of seating arrangements and accommodate small and large groups and to make sure your event is organized, comfortable, and accessible for all participants.

For event inquiries, availability of rooms, rates, and additional information on our space, please contact our office manager, Bridget Leahy at bleahy@middlebury.edu
