Visit DC

Faculty can use the W&M Washington Center in a variety of ways -- to check email for an hour, arrange a single day class visit for students, plan a multi-day conference with speakers... and anything in between or beyond! 

Our staff can help you:

  • Put together a day trip to DC for your class --  letting your students talk with experts from virtually any field. From transportation, food, and speakers, to classroom space and site visits -- we’ve got you covered.
  • Plan a conference -- we can arrange space, advertise, work with caterers, connect you with area hotels... and more!
  • Research -- we can give you a workspace, phone, and computer, or connect you with experts at the Library of Congress!  You name it and we can arrange it.
  • Work from our center -- use our conference room to meet with alumni or videoconference into a seminar.  We have offices and rooms you can use!
  • Participate in professional development opportunities -- if you are attending a DC area conference and want to hold a reception here, we can help arrange it.  If you want to host a panel of speakers with a light lunch, we can help arrange it.  Let us know your needs and we can make it work!
