Orientation

We know you're excited for your time at W&M to begin. You'll need to know what to do and where to go. No problem! We have the Tribe Guide for that!

The Tribe Guide is developed for your specific incoming semester to guide you through your new student requirements and is available at 12 Noon (Eastern) on May 1 and December 1 for Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 new students, respectively.  Plus, over time we will provide move-in information and orientation schedules.

Orientation, an enrollment requirement, occurs before the Fall (August 25-29, 2017) and Spring (January 12-16, 2018) semesters to introduce new students to many aspects of William & Mary including student life, academic policies, and the honor code. The goal of each orientation program is to make our students feel right at home from the moment they set foot on campus.

New students traditionally move into their residence hall assignments the morning of the first day of Orientation (August 25th or January 12th) from roughly 8 AM until 12 Noon.  Additional information will be provided in your forthcoming Tribe Guide.  Residence Life can answer questions about living on campus and what to bring with you!
