Residence Hall Lodging
Rooms in the residence halls typically include a twin-size bed (usually bunked), desk, chair, and dresser.  Most rooms are double occupancy and have shared hall restrooms.  A few of the rooms are suite-style, where two bedrooms share a bathroom.  Remember since students use these rooms, they remove all of their personal belongings when they depart.  As such, there are no kitchen utensils, television, or other personal amenities or electronics provided in rooms.  Telephones are provided in each room (when requested by your group planner).   Local calls are at no charge, while long distance calls require calling or credit cards.  Voicemail is not provided unless the group planner has made arrangements for this service.  Linens and amenities are provided. You will receive:  sheets, pillowcase, blanket, pillow with slipcover, towels, washcloths, and an amenity packet.

Housekeepers are not permitted to enter occupied rooms or apartments.  Guests are requested to make their own beds and dispose of trash as needed in the central receptacles provided on each floor or the dumpster located next to the residence hall.  Housekeeping will be provided in the common areas (hall baths and common lounges) only.

All campus visitors must display a guest parking permit.  Please obtain a pass through your group planner prior to arrival on campus.  Parking permits are good for the duration of the program.  Parking is permitted in resident and day student lots only.  Guests must follow the College?s parking regulations and failure to do so may result in ticketing by the parking office.

The College of William and Mary facilities are smoke-free.

Theft / Security
The College is not responsible for lost or stolen belongings. Guests are encouraged to leave valuable personal items at home.  The conference center will hold all lost/found items for 14-days.  After this time, items will be discarded or donated to a local charity.
