Housing & Dining

Nestled in the colonial capital of Virginia are the homes away from home of over 5,000 William & Mary students. Living on campus provides the opportunity to surround yourself with exceptionally smart, fun and gifted people. As for food, glorious food, forget everything you think you know about college dining — at W&M you'll find healthy, delicious and often locally-sourced cuisine.
