COVID 19 Campus Resources

 As of 3/18/2020: Effective this morning, William & Mary is instituting a “locked, but not closed” policy for all W&M buildings, including VIMS. This means W&M buildings will be locked and only accessible by electronic or manual key to faculty, staff and students who require entry. The university is also asking our community members to always lock doors behind them when entering a facility. If you require entry, but do not have a key, please contact W&M Police at 757-221-4596.
