Important Considerations
  • Washington, DC: Flights are generally cheaper to DC, but public transportation from DC to Williamsburg is minimal. It can be expensive and complicated to travel from DC to Williamsburg, so you may want to consider flying into Richmond International Airport.
  • Packing/Shipping Dorm Necessities: Students must provide all of their own blankets, towels, and sheets.  Traveling with linens and clothes for three weeks can be difficult and expensive.  An alternative to packing dorm items would be to ship items directly to NIAHD's office the week before your session start date.  Items delivered to NIAHD's office will be taken directly to the dorm.  Students will not have to transport them on their own.  Email NIAHD if you would like more information about shipping items.
