Outer Limits Welcome Message

Greetings from The College of William & Mary!
A Message from your Area Director

To all students, parents, family and friends, I want to personally offer my welcome to you for the upcoming year. I am the Area Director for the Outer Limits. This area includes the following residence halls: Ludwell, Hunt, Taliaferro, Reves,  Brown and the Graduate Complex. You might ask yourself, what is an Area Director?  I am a full-time live-in staff member of the College with a Master’s Degree. I have worked in Residence Life for many years, so I have extensive experience in student housing and in working with the issues and concerns of our residential students. Overall, I am responsible for the day-to-day activities that occur in the Outer Limits/Yates.

Living in a residence hall can be a time of great excitement and challenges! As Residence Life staff, it is our responsibility to ensure that we offer support to our students while encouraging their independence and personal responsibility. With many student staff members in this area, we offer a great deal of information and guidance. We are also known for having a tremendous amount of fun. I can assure you -- there is never a lack of something to do. One of the greatest ways to be involved is to be a part of Hall Council--the governing body for the residence halls. It is also a fast way to make new friends and offer input about your building.

At this point in the year, students are often thinking about how to prepare for the upcoming year. Please review the Residence Life website for information that can help in this process. I understand that sometimes it is necessary to speak to someone directly. I encourage you to contact me should you have any questions.

Welcome to all our new students, and welcome back to our returning students! I look forward to your arrival in August!

Greetings and welcome to the Ludwell Apartments!

            Secluded from the hustle and bustle of main campus, the Ludwell Apartment Complex is the ideal location for upperclassmen seeking a balance between off- campus amenities and on- campus convenience. Located off of Rolfe Road and adjacent to the Mason School of Business, the Ludwell Apartments offer a unique living experience in which students have access to a number of luxurious amenities including a kitchen with a full- size fridge, oven, garbage disposal, and dishwasher; a bathroom with large bathtubs; spacious living quarters with a sofa and arm chair; as well as a desk, bed, and dresser for each resident.

            Never fear about getting around the College and the Williamsburg area! There are three bus stops across the complex that connects students to old and new campus as well as local shopping and dining every thirty minutes. The Ludwell Apartment Complex is also bike friendly offering not only numerous bike racks but also one of the few bike- repair stations on campus. For those residents who have a personal vehicle, there is ample parking throughout the complex.

            Living in the Ludwell Apartments offers a number of additional benefits for you to take advantage of. You will have access to a large laundry facility with a change machine making laundry day a breeze. Enjoy the temperate Williamsburg weather with five available outdoor grilling stations and picnic tables. Stay connected and informed with cable and high speed wireless internet access in every apartment. The complex is also just a stone throw away from the serenity of Lake Matoaka.

            Living in Ludwell will allow you the opportunity to truly self- determine your housing experience here at the College. Having your own apartment will allow for you to truly embrace your independence, while attending programs organized by your resident assistants and being active participants of the Ludwell Hall Council will foster a sense of community like no other.

Welcome home!
