Student Housing

Live at the Graduate Complex and live next door!

Apartment-style housing is available at the Lettie Patte Whitehead Graduate Complex. Adjacent to the Law School, the Graduate Complex has two-, three-, and four- bedroom apartments furnished with all the basics. The apartments include a kitchen, living/dining area and one or two bathrooms. Rent varies depending on the number of bedrooms but includes all utilities, private telephone with voicemail, cable TV, and high-speed Internet access.

Convenient to the Law School, the Graduate Complex is also a short walk to Colonial Williamsburg or a hop on the bus that stops at the complex's entrance and ventures beyond historic Williamsburg to other shopping and entertainment areas.

About 20 percent of the Law School student body secures housing at the Graduate Complex. Apartment-mates may be students from any of the various William & Mary graduate programs. The complex does not accommodate families or married couples.

Off-campus housing

The Williamsburg area has an abundance of neighborhoods which comprise single family, condo and apartment living. Local newspapers such as the Virginia Gazette and realty companies are good resources for both purchasing and renting.  The apartment guide, HotPads, RenttoOwnLabs.com, trulia, Zillow, or zumper may be useful to hunt down appropriate living accommodations. Off Campus Partners maintains a database of area landlords seeking renters and one of students seeking roommates.  Finally, our Admission Office produces a Housing Bulletin that is mailed to you upon admission.

Have kids?

The Williamsburg area is kid-friendly.  There is a campus childcare center for pre-school age children and both public and private school options are available.

Dining on campus

Zime, the Law School's bistro, offers fresh soups, sandwiches, salads and sushi. Or just stop by for a caffeine fix with specialty coffees and teas or a healthy juice drink.

Purchase a meal plan and dine at any number of University facilities where food choices ranges from down-home favorites at the Sadler Center dining hall to the upscale food court at the Marketplace Cafe or to refined cuisine like blackened tuna and arugula pasta at "The Caf."
