Undergrad Room Selection

Join the 2016 room selection process.


What's Happening in Room Selection!
  • On-line selection starts on Monday, April 11. Please review the Room Selection Guide so you know what to expect.
  • Available space and available Tribe Square Apartments
  • Using Your Time Block - Once your time block begins, log in within 48 hours to make your selection. After 48 hours your time block will be voided and we will reinstate a student from the wait list (if needed).  If you are waiting to select for someone later in the process, we will NOT void your time block as long as you email living@wm.edu in advance.   This does not apply to students who have a time block or group time block after 12 noon on Wednesday, April 13.

  • Wait List and reinstatement information.   As of Thursday, April 7 at 8:30AM, all wait listed students have been reinstated.  Residence Life is no longer accepting requests to opt out for a refund unless you are withdrawing from the university or are committed to a W&M approved study away program.


What's New With Campus Housing For 2016-2017

  • The Lodges will no longer be available for student housing and will be removed as contruction begins on the new Intergrative Wellness Center.
  • A new housing option will be available for students in 2016-2017 – Flexible Housing, also known at gender neutral or gender inclusive housing, will be an option in locations where we have apartments including Ludwell, Cabell, Nicholas and Tribe Square.  Check out the website for details on Flexible Housing.

All eligible upper-class students who wish to live on campus during the upcoming academic year must join the Room Selection Process.

Housing for incoming freshmen (2016-2017) is managed by a different process ... don't worry. We'll be in touch.

Who's Eligible?

You must be a currently enrolled, full-time undergraduate student for the spring semester 2016 or be readmitted for the fall 2016 semester by Friday, February 19, 2016 (contact the Dean of Students regarding readmission). If you are currently in campus housing you cannot have any outstanding charges with Residence Life.

Step 1: Your Room Reservation Deposit

To join the Room Selection Process you need to pay the $200 non-refundable Room Reservation Deposit. This applies to all students interested in participating in any part of the housing selection process.

Step 2: Submitting your on-line Housing Contract

Accept the terms and conditions of the on-line housing contract prior to spring break.  Accepting the terms and conditions does not commit you to housing but allows you to move forward in the room selection process.  You are not committed to housing until you accept a space in campus housing; as a individual or as part of a roommate group.

Step 3: Prepare for Selection

Many factors will come into play as you prepare to complete the room selection process. Take some time to carefully select roommates (or not) and research your rooming options, learn about time blocks, and how a variety of factors such as opting out and the wait list may affect your final rooming selection.

Step 4: Online Room Selection

Learn what to expect from online room selection before the beginning of your time block. Do you need to create a Roommate Group in the housing system? Do you need to all log in together? What if you don't have a time block? Find out. Knowing what to expect from the system is key to reducing your stress.
