In 2020–21, Dining Services operations will be informed by current guidance from the CDC and the Vermont Department of Health. To prevent the spread of the virus, physical distancing and enhanced cleaning protocols will be integrated into all dining locations. Hours, seating arrangements, and other details of dining service will change throughout the year as public health conditions warrant.

The campus status web page will have the most up-to-date information on dining status (for example, whether dining is takeout only or if inside seating is available). More detailed information may be found on the Dining Services website.

Students enrolled to study in person who are living off campus and would like to be on or removed from the meal plan should email Dining Services at dining@middlebury.edu.

Dining for Students in Quarantine and Isolation

Delivery services will be provided while students are in room quarantine awaiting Day 0 test results and for students who are in quarantine or isolation on campus, as mandated by Health Services or the Vermont Department of Health. This will allow students to access meals without creating an exposure risk to the rest of the community. 

In certain situations, such as a student self-isolating while awaiting a test result or disciplinary decision, students may be asked to have friends deliver meals.

Students living off campus and enrolled for on-campus study will need to make arrangements for food delivery and/or to have housemates provide food for them during quarantine at their off-campus residence. If they are assigned to isolation housing on campus, meal delivery will be provided.
