Info for Students & Families

For fall, William & Mary has moved to a phased re-opening that will host fewer students on-campus prior to Labor Day. This dedensification is in response to regional health trends, stricter state guidelines put into effect in late July and the university's ongoing commitment to facilitate a safe and healthy return to campus.

The university has developed Path Forward: Fall 2020 guidelines and resources to facilitate this transition. These measures are part of a coordinated effort to support physical distancing and reduce the spread of COVID-19.

We recognize this spring and fall are not the semesters anyone anticipated and that students may be facing unique and unforeseen needs. The Dean of Students office has emergency funds available for this purpose. Students with specific needs are encouraged to contact the office at [[deanofstudents]] so we can assess your personal situation.
