The Office of First Year Experience supports the transition of new students into the W&M community through programming and outreach services, including New Student Orientation.
New Students Arriving Fall 2019
Congratulations on your decision to attend William & Mary! We are excited to welcome you to the Tribe and to help you make the most of your time at the College.
Step 1: Go to the Tribe Guide
The Tribe Guide (available May 1 at 12 Noon Eastern) will lead you through everything that you need before arriving on campus in August.
Step 2: Make Note of the Orientation Dates
Orientation for new spring semester students will take place August 23-27. Parent & Family Orientation is scheduled for August 23-24. New students residing on campus will move into their residence hall room assignment the first day of orientation (August 23).
Step 3: Review the Fall Orientation Schedule
All students entering for the fall 2019 semester are required to attend the New Student Orientation Program. Working versions of the fall New Student & Family Orientation Schedules will be available in early June 2019.
If you have any questions about the first-year transition or the orientation program, contact the Office First Year Experience. We are here to help!
