We are writing to solicit your feedback on one of the most important aspects of your life at Middlebury. A defining characteristic of student life at Middlebury is living as a member of a small, residential community. This community is where you study, play, learn, and think; this community is your home.
Middlebury offers a great variety of housing options—residence-hall singles or doubles, two-room doubles, sink-mates, suites, apartments, townhouses, mods, small blocks, large blocks, superblocks, houses, academic-interest houses, language houses, and social houses.
Each year we try to improve housing offerings while balancing student requests with the needs of the College. One innovation we will adopt next year will be to offer all Room Draw housing, including regular doubles, as all gender. This option allows two students to share a double room regardless of the students’ gender. Another new offering will involve trying the SuperBlock Program in a more focused community of small, theme houses in the Mods area. We have engaged the SGA, Community Council, and a number of students on campus for their opinions and advice about these programs and housing issues in general. We would like to hear from more students, to learn more about your ideas and what is important to you.
We know that your living arrangements play an important role in your life at Middlebury. In order to improve our systems and facilities, we are asking for your feedback. Please share what you think, your suggestions for improvements, and your ideas for new offerings by posting a comment here. (To leave a comment, click on “comments” directly beneath the post title.)
We have also created a new web form just for this purpose. It can be found on the website for Undergraduate Housing.
The best way for students to stay informed on housing processes and deadlines is to carefully read e-mails received from Residential Student Coordinator Karin Hall-Kolts and to use the Undergraduate Housing website.
Thank you for your attention. Please post your comments here and/or fill out the form on the Undergraduate Housing website.
