Time Blocks

Your room selection window.

Your room selection is completed online in the W&M Housing system during your assigned time block. Time blocks run over about a week (March 25-29) to limit interference with classes and to ease the load on the system. New time blocks begin every 30 minutes from 9:00am - 4:00pm each week day during the process. In each time block a maximum of 40 students will enter the process.

Who goes first?

Time blocks are assigned based on social classes with rising seniors getting the first time blocks followed by rising juniors then rising sophomores. Fifth year seniors are not assigned separate time blocks but are assigned with all other rising seniors. Spring admit transfer students are encouraged to verify their social classification with the Registrar's Office by Friday, February 15, 2019. 

In order to assign time blocks, there will be no changes to your social classification after March 1, 2019.

Prepare, prepare, prepare!

Once you have been assigned a time block, there are several steps you can complete ahead of time. Review the online selection process carefully to learn what you can do ahead of time to ensure your best possible outcome during your time block. We also employ several rooming options that you can persue ahead of your time block. Be sure to review: Flexible Housing, Same Room Selection, Overcrowd Selection and Block Housing.
