Housing Costs

Although majority of the class sessions will be online, there will be a limited number of mandatory in-person class sessions. The W&M Washington Center does not provide designated student housing for DC Summer Session.

For those students who do not live locally, we are working with partner hotels to create a discounted room rate. Even discounted summer hotel rates in DC can be extremely high, however, so if costs are a concern, it's our recommendation to explore a "friends and family" housing option for the four nights of the in-person class sessions.

Financial Aid

W&M students can use grants, student loans, or families can take out a PLUS Loan, to cover the cost of Summer Session courses. Students must complete a FAFSA form to apply for loans. For questions regarding this process, please contact [[gjanderson, Ginia Anderson]] at the W&M Financial Aid office.

Additional Student Spending in DC

The average cost per student will vary; however, most students report spending between $50-$100 in a week on groceries and other personal expenses and about $35 per week on Metro fare.  We strongly recommend taking advantage of the various public transportation options that DC has to offer. The W&M Washington Center does not have available parking (overnight hotel parking can exceed $45/day). In addition, students traveling from out of state or the immediate DC area will have varying travel costs.


If you've registered and paid your tuition, but now need to withdraw, contact the Bursar's Office for instructions.

Veterans Education Benefits

Students planning to use veterans education (GI Bill®) benefits should be aware that the Department of Veterans Affairs has determined that courses at William & Mary's D.C. campus are ineligible.
