What's Happening in Room Selection 2019 

  • No deposit needed! To join the Room Selection Process you need to read and sign a 2019-2020 W&M Housing contract as part of the housing application. Housing contracts will be available online beginning January 16, 2019.
  • Stay informed; read your weekly Room Selection Update emails! 

All eligible upper-class students who wish to live on campus during the upcoming academic year must sign a 2019-2020 housing contract by February 20, 2019 to participate in the Room Selection Process. There is no deposit required.

Housing for incoming freshmen (2019-2020) 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 2019 semester or be readmitted for the fall 2019 semester by Wednesday, February 20, 2019 (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: Complete and submit your online Housing Contract

No deposit needed! To join the Room Selection Process you need to read and sign a 2019-2020 W&M Housing contract as part of the housing application. Housing contracts will be available online beginning January 16, 2019. Those who complete the contract by February 20, 2019 will be eligible to participate in the room selection process. Contracts signed after February 20, 2019 will be assigned rooms as space permits. By signing and submitting the housing contract you are committing to pay for on campus housing for the full 2019-2020 academic year. This means you commit before you know your specific room assignment. Please review the contract carefully, including the limited cancellation policies. This is a legally binding document.   

Step 2: Prepare for Selection

Many factors will come into play as you prepare to complete the room selection process. Take some time to carefully consider your plans to select roommates (or not) and research your rooming options, learn about time blocks, and how a variety of factors may affect your final rooming selection. Curious what your chances are for getting into Tribe Square or other locations? Check out past year stats.

Step 3: 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 process is key to reducing your stress.
