Housing

For many of you, this will be the first time you've ever lived away from home and we want to make the housing process as painless as possible.

Table Outlining Housing Types and Resources
Class of 2026 Freshman Campus Housing

If you're an incoming spring semester freshman it all starts with your 2022-23 Housing Application. Submit your application via the On-Campus Housing Portal using your W&M credentials - and - make any special housing requests as soon as possible. Learn more about the process and get started today!

Transfer Campus Housing

While social class of 2025 and 2024 transfer students fall under the two-year residency requirement, ALL transfers are welcome to live on campus! We recommend that transfer students apply as soon as possible by completing the 2022-23 Housing Application via the On-Campus Housing Portal using your W&M credentials. Make sure to provide accurate contact information so that Residence Life can reach you over the winter break. We will make housing offers via email, so it is important to check your university email often.

Priority Housing Accommodations

If you require any housing-related accommodations due to a diagnosed disability, you must register with Student Accessibility Services. All requests and documentation for this type of housing accommodation must be submitted as soon as possible. Once Student Accessibility Services has received your completed registration and documentation information, please allow up to two (2) weeks for processing. We will process requests submitted after the deadline as soon as possible, but approvals may be delayed due to housing availability and other factors. SAS will notify Residence Life if your accommodation is approved.

Residence Life is committed to offering gender inclusive housing options to ensure inclusive communities. Residence Life offers two options of housing preferences based on gender:

  • Single-Gender Housing – having roommates/suitemates/apartment-mates who have the same sex listed in Banner
  • Gender Inclusive Housing – having roommates/suitemates/apartment-mates of any gender or gender expression/identity.
Two Year Live on Requirement

Students enrolled full time are required to live in on-campus housing during their first two (2) years following their high school graduation. The program will explore additional academic, social, and cultural living and learning communities for students in the third and fourth semesters at W&M. Learn more about this requirement now.
