Tribe Guide

Welcome new spring semester students!

The William & Mary Tribe Guide is your one-stop online source for information about what you need to do before you arrive in Williamsburg this January for Spring Orientation. From advising and registration to housing and meal plans, the Tribe Guide is here to help you make a smooth transition to life at W&M.

Get Started!

Have you activated your account? If not, activate your WMuserid now. You will need to create a secure, personalized password.


Once you pay your enrollment deposit, you'll be able to activate your WMApps email account. Check it frequently for important updates.

Student Tribe Card

This is your official form of college identification. It serves as your meal plan card, library card, and facility access card to residence halls, recreational facilities, the Student Health Center, some academic buildings, campus bus transportation, as well as access to athletic events.


You'll use myWM to access a variety of core services such as Banner for financial aid awards and class registration, and your WMApps email. Go ahead and visit myWM to take a look.


No problem. We're here to help!

William & Mary will close for the university's Winter Break at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, December 20 and re-open at 8:00 am on Wednesday, January 3.
