Housing Contracts

Your housing contract is a legally binding document and signing the contract obligates a student to reside in W&M housing for the length of the contract. You should read the housing contract carefully before committing to campus housing for the entire academic year.

Cost

On-campus housing is rented by room and rates vary. Rent includes furniture and utilities. Laundry facilities are also available for a per load fee.

Storage Options

Residence Life does not offer on-campus storage and recommends students to use local storage companies.
