In the format of username@middlebury.edu', yourMiddlebury 'account provides access to authorized services and resources, such as e-mail, the wireless network, cloud storage on Google and OneDrive, printing, software installations, BannerAdmin, Oracle, and more.  You should protect your account with a strong password and keep it safe so it is known only to you.  

Tips for a Successful Midd Password Change

  • Always turn off all mobile devices before changing your network password to avoid account lockouts due to attempted connections using your old password.
  • Whenever practical, change your password while on the Middlebury College network.

 

I KNOW MY CURRENT PASSWORD

Faculty & Staff with a college-issued computer who are ON the campus network

The preferred method for a password change when you know your current password is to use your computer's operating system as follows.

Important Note: If you have multiple computers, we recommended using your macOS computer to change your password.

For Windows, press Ctrl + Alt + Delete, then choose "Change a Password."

For MacOS, open Systems Preferences, then Users & Groups. Select your user account, then click the Change Password... button.

ALL STUDENTS; also Faculty & Staff who are OFF-campus or are NOT using a college-issued computer

Change Midd password using this website https://account.activedirectory.windowsazure.com/ChangePassword.aspx (http://go.middlebury.edu/changepassword)

Once you return to campus it may be necessary to restart your computer connected to a network to update computer password. macOS will require a wireless password be updated.

 

I Don't Know My Current Password

In cases where the Midd password has been forgotten, faculty, staff, and students all use this link to reset their password:

    https://passwordreset.microsoftonline.com   (User ID in username@middlebury.edu format)
