As Middlebury transitions services to the cloud for improved convenience and accessibility, we'd like to provide some basic terminology for reference.

  • The Cloud: refers to files or services located elsewhere and accessed via the Internet, as opposed to being hosted locally on Middlebury's servers. This approach allows for cost savings due to scale, and better accessibility from off-campus.
  • All students, faculty, and staff can store files in OneDrive and/or Google Drive cloud storage using their Middlebury account (username@middlebury.edu) and password.
  • All students, faculty, and staff have a cloud-hosted Exchange e-mail account.
