How to find off-campus housing?

  • check the Student Information Network's on-line "housing center."
  • try the classifies in the Virginia Gazette or the Daily Press.
  • Click on "Apartments and Homes for Rent," then limit your search to Newport News and Vicinity. Then choose options 7 or 8: Williamsburg and James City County or York County and Poquoson. The City of Williamsburg is not in a county, so you'll want to search the James City County and York County listings too. Keep in mind, though, that those are big counties.
  • Get in touch with current history graduate students by sending a housing wanted message to our office manager, [[gaconn,Gail Conner]]. She will forward it on to the graduate students for you.
