check-in with Residence Life and procure your residence hall room key
You will need the following when you arrive at the Residence Life table:
Clearance from the W&M Student Health Center. If you have not heard from a Health Center official, you can assume you are okay.
Patience. Our staff will do the best they can to check you in quickly. However, circumstances sometimes occur beyond their control that may slow up the process.
After you have completed the entire check-in process and have arrived at your building's unloading zone, please unpack your vehicle and park your car in a nearby lot before moving your belongings up to your room.
Personal Property Insurance Recommended for Residential Students
The university is not responsible or liable for any loss or damage to property resulting from fire, theft, casualty or any cause, or for personal injury occurring within the leased premises, except as may be required by Virginia law. It is strongly recommended that personal property insurance be obtained by each student for his or her belongings. Renter's insurance is offered by most major insurance companies; some companies actually offer the option of a rider on a homeowner's policy to cover the belongings of students away at college. We recommend that you contact your current insurance provider or visit these informational websites for quotes, guides andreviews, to examine your options.
