On-Campus Housing

Housing Information by Student Status
  • Undergraduate Students
    • Newly admitted undergraduate international students staying on campus will be able to move into their dorms at the start of international orientation (August 22, 2017), but not earlier. If you need a place to stay before you can move-in, please see other short-term housing options.
    • You must be on campus for final exams at the end of each semester. Exams cannot be rescheduled for flights. W&M undergraduate residence halls close after exams and for some holidays. International students living in the dorms and continuing their studies at W&M in the spring are eligible to apply for winter break housing at no extra cost.
    • All freshmen are required to stay on-campus and therefore are guaranteed on-campus housing. Freshmen will apply for housing thru Tribe Guide.
    • Upper-class/Transfer Students/Exchange Students must submit a Housing Application to live on-campus. Rooms are assigned in the order that the applications are received, therefore, it is important to submit an application as soon as possible.

  • Graduate Students (including graduate exchange students)
    • Graduate Students can apply with Residence Life to move into the Graduate Complex early. If Residence Life is not able to accommodate your request, please see other short-term housing options.
General Housing Information
Housing Contracts

Your housing contract is a legally binding document that covers both the fall and spring semesters. Signing the contract obligates a student to reside in W&M housing for the entire academic year or the period of time the student is enrolled at William & Mary (if shorter than an academic year). You should read the housing contract carefully before committing to campus housing for the entire academic year.

Cost

On-campus housing is rented by room and rates vary. Rent includes furniture and utilities. Laundry facilities are also available for a per load fee.
