All students at William & Mary have access to a wide range of resources. There are also opportunities tailored specifically for our graduate students, many of which are coordinated by the A&S Graduate Center, including the professional development offered through our GRAD courses and specialized programs offered through the Cohen Career Center. The Graduate Student Association for Arts & Sciences exists to represent the interests of our students, and the Ombudsperson acts as a source of information and assistance concerning graduate life, academic and non-academic rules, regulations, and procedures.

Our graduate students participate in every aspect of campus life – they have their own residence hall, may sign up for a meal plan, and use the Counseling CenterHealth Center or Recreation CenterChild care and disability services are available to those who need it. Williamsburg is a growing college town within day-tripping distance of several major urban areas, including Washington, D.C.. 

Most graduate students have financial support through teaching or research assistantships, and there are other funding opportunities to help cover research, travel, or conference costs. The weekly Graduate A&S Newsletter keeps students informed of these and other resources.
