What to expect at check-in:

When you arrive on campus, you will be directed to a residence hall where Residence Life staff will be available to issue you a key and other important check-in materials. Student volunteers will then help unload your vehicle so that it can be moved to a permanent parking space. You can then proceed with moving your belongings to your room!

You will need the following at check-in:
  • A photo ID.
  • Hall Council Dues - dues vary from building to building but averages $25-$30 for programming in the hall. This is an optional fee used for both educational and social programming in the halls. It also is used for the purchase of vacuums, DVD players, TVs, and microwaves, and other hall improvements as determined by the Hall Council.
  • Clearance from the Health Center on the Health Form, including immunizations. If you have not heard from the Health Center, you can assume you are okay.
  • Patience. Our staff will do the best they can to check you in quickly; however, circumstances sometimes occur beyond their control that may slow up the process. Remember that many of our check-in days have been fairly hot so a little extra patience could make the day go more smoothly for everyone!
Early Arrivals

Individuals who need to arrive early may find it beneficial to make arrangements with the Williamsburg Hotel/Motel Association for accommodations (1-800-999-4485) or visit their web site at Sorry, but we will not be able to accommodate early arrivals.
