Tribe Guide

Welcome new spring semester students!

The William & Mary Tribe Guide is your one-stop online source for information about what you need to do before you arrive in Williamsburg this January for Spring Orientation. From advising and registration to housing and meal plans, the Tribe Guide is here to help you make a smooth transition to life at W&M.

Get Started!

Have you activated your account? If not, activate your W&M Account now. You will need to create a secure, personalized password.

Duo Two-Factor Authentication

Duo is William & Mary's two-factor authentication service which helps protect your account against increasingly sophisticated security threats. Students are required to use Duo to access most W&M systems, including email and Blackboard. Enroll in Duo now at 2f.wm.edu.


After you pay your enrollment deposit, you will be able to access your G Suite (Google) email account. The standard format for student email addresses is username@email.wm.edu. Make sure to check it frequently for important updates. G Suite accounts are created 24-48 hours after the enrollment deposit is processed. 

Student Tribe Card

This is your official form of university identification. It serves as your meal plan card, library card, and facility access card to residence halls, recreational facilities, the Student Health Center, some academic buildings, campus bus transportation, as well as access to athletic events.


You'll use myW&M to access a variety of core services such as Banner for financial aid awards and class registration, and your G Suite email. Go ahead and visit myW&M to take a look.


No problem. We're here to help!

William & Mary will close for the university's Winter Break at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, December 23 and re-open at 8:00 am on Monday, January 4.
