You may print a copy of the special housing request form on Generals' Headquarters. You will have access to apply for housing once you have confirmed your admission to W&L and received an information packet via USPS from the Office of the Dean of First-Year Students. Information packets are sent out to confirmed students weekly beginning late March/early April.
Rooms are assigned in the order housing applications are received and Early Decision students are given preference for single rooms. You will be notified of your housing assignment by August 1, 2013.
All first-year students at Washington and Lee University live in on-campus housing.
The first-year residence hall floors are divided into sections of 12 to 20 students, each supervised by a resident adviser who is a trained upper-division student capable of giving sympathetic and informed guidance to new students. In keeping with the traditions of student life at the University, the regulation of residence halls life is based on the principle of student self-government. Except for regulations pertaining to health, safety, and alcohol and drugs, regulations governing residential life—quiet hours, visitation policy, for example—are set by the residents of each section in statements of social responsibility.
Rooms with facilities for physically disabled students are available in both singles and doubles.
