Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey
Does the Institute have on-campus housing or dormitories for SILP students?

The Institute does not have on-campus housing or dormitories available for students. This can cause some dismay for Summer Intensive Language Program (SILP) participants, but not to worry! There are several options available for summer housing.

  • Option 1: Summer sublet

Many of the Master’s degree candidates spend their summers traveling, completing internships, or working for organizations related to their program and sublet their apartments or rooms during that time.

  • Option 2: MIIS Housing Website

The Institute now maintains an Off-Campus housing website for all of its enrolled students. There are many local property owners who list their apartments, studios, and rooms-for-rent with the Institute. Due to the nature of housing at MIIS and the landlords’ familiarity with the flow of our student body there is typically a good assortment of short-term rentals available in the summer.

  • Option 3: Hotel Accommodations

Another option for summer students is to arrange hotel accommodations for the duration of your stay in Monterey. There is a list of hotels that have accommodated MIIS students during the summer months with special rates for extended stays available on the website. Some good hotels/inns to start with are the Vagabond Inn, Howard Johnson Express, and El Adobe Inn. Please see the website for the complete list.
