Housing Information by Student Status

General Housing Information
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 the housing contract carefully before committing to campus housing for the entire academic year.
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.
Advice from other students:
- If you arrive earlier than your dorm's move-in date, you can search online and book a hotel near the College.
- Graduate Students can apply to move into the Graduate Complex early. Undergraduate international students can only move into on-campus housing at the start of international orientation, but not earlier. For additional summer housing options, short-term housing options.
- Notify Residence Life in writing (by email) of any problems with your room or apartment when you move in and save this just in case there are later questions about this. If you do not document these, you could be charged for them when you move out.
- Take a picture of any problems you see when you move in (nail holes, dings, color on walls, problems with floors, etc.).
- If you request any repairs, do this in writing (such as by email, or through an online form), and save a copy. That way, you have documented that you requested these repairs.
