Students participating in the D.C. Summer Institutes program may choose to live on their own or are given priority to W&M-sponsored housing. D.C. Summer Institute students are required to notify the Housing Coordinator of their housing needs by the date given by the DCSI Program Coordinator. All students who request W&M-sponsored housing by the given date are guaranteed housing for summer 2023.

Costs and Fees

The rates for those who choose to stay in W&M sponsored are $4,000 for a double room or $7,000 for a single room (pending availability) for the 12-week program. Students will be charged a portion of their total housing cost in the form of a $1,800 housing deposit to reserve their room. This initial charge is charged to the fellows through their student accounts. The remaining summer housing costs will be applied directly to the student's account at a later date.
