Summer Student Employment

Students interested in securing a job on campus this summer, please read ALL the information on the Student Employment Office (SEO) Website at

Here are a few high-lights:

How to apply for a Job

Jobs will be posted on the SEO website.  Students will need to create an account through the online system if they haven’t already.  It is recommended to set up your account NOW so you will be ready to apply for jobs as they become available.

All students hired to work for Middlebury during the summer must submit a Summer Student Employment and Housing Agreement to SEO by April 19th.  Forms are available on the SEO website and at the Student Employment Office in the Service Building.

Students that have not worked on campus before and do not have a blue employment card will need to complete employment forms at SEO.  Click on ‘Employment Eligibility’ on the website for additional information:

All summer jobs must conclude by August 17th, the end of Language Schools. Job extensions previously approved by the Student Employment Office are the only exceptions (these will be noted on the job posting).

To be eligible for on campus housing students must be employed by Middlebury College and working at least 30 hours per week.

Weekly Costs for Summer Student Employees living on campus:

On campus housing is $50 per week and covers housing and activities fees. Summer Student Employees will be housed in Stewart and Starr and will be assigned a room based on availability. The summer meal plan is $50 per week from June 10 through August 17 and includes breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday through Friday and brunch and dinner on the weekend. All meals will be served in Proctor Redfield. Students living on campus when a meal plan is not offered (before reunion and after Language School commencement) are expected to supply their own meals.

[Note: 2013 graduates may NOT work in a student position and may NOT live in student housing.  Please click on job seekers on the College’s home page to see available staff opportunities.]

MIDDBEAT.ORG New Event Publication Website

Ever felt like there’s no single source where you can find out all Middlebury events and news on a daily basis? We had the same frustration. That’s why a few Midd students gathered together to create, a fun and engaging website with short, humorous posts informing you about anything and everything going on at Middlebury. With constant updates, middbeat always keeps you in the loop. PLEASE check it out, and feel free to use the event submission feature (on the right side of the screen) if you’d like us to post a personal or group event or news story!

We look forward to further developing the site, and could use your help. If you are interested in writing for Middbeat or working on web design, please email us at or through our Facebook page.
