About Middlebury College

Middlebury College has emerged as one of a handful of the most highly regarded liberal arts colleges from over the years. Middlebury is unique among these schools in being a classic liberal arts college that also offers graduate and specialized programs operating around the world.

The College is committed to educating students in the tradition of the liberal arts, which embodies a method of discourse as well as a group of disciplines; in our scientifically and mathematically oriented majors, just as in the humanities, the social sciences, the arts, and the languages, we emphasize reflection, discussion, and intensive interactions between students and faculty members. Our vibrant residential community, remarkable facilities, and the diversity of our co-curricular activities and support services all exist primarily to serve these educational purposes.

Campus information

In addition to the main campus located in close proximity to the village of Middlebury, the College maintains extensive athletic and recreational space, including a golf course, at the periphery of the campus. The College also includes the Bread Loaf Mountain campus, located in the middle of 30,000 acres of forested land in Ripton, Vermont, 12 miles east of Middlebury. The Bread Loaf campus contains residential and academic buildings that accommodate about 350 participants in the Bread Loaf School of English and the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference. During the winter, the Bread Loaf campus serves as a ski touring center.

The Middlebury College Snow Bowl, located adjacent to Bread Loaf in Hancock, Vermont, 14 miles from the main campus, provides facilities for recreational and intercollegiate skiing that are popular with members of the local community as well as the student body.

As the largest town by population in Addison County, Middlebury serves as the commercial and business center for the region. Downtown hosts a three-screen movie theater, the post office, and two historic inns, as well as many shops and restaurants. 


Middlebury’s residential system is based on the understanding that an excellent liberal arts education takes place around the clock—as easily over dinner as in the classroom. Living among other students provides opportunities to challenge yourself, learn deeply, develop friendships, and discover new ways of thinking.

Middlebury has more than 60 on-campus buildings for student housing. Students enrolled full time are required to live on campus and participate in the dining plan. All first-year students are assigned to one of five Commons for the first two years. Juniors and seniors can choose from other housing options available across campus while remaining a member of their original Commons. A limited number of releases are available for senior students to live off campus with prior approval from Residential Life.

Students with special medical needs that necessitate a housing accommodation should address their concerns to Residential Life and the Student Accessibility Services.

Students who are married or have dependent children living with them are exempted from the residency and board requirements upon providing documentation to Residential Life.

Students leaving Middlebury College at any time during the academic year are responsible for packing their belongings and arranging for storage or shipping.
