College of William & Mary

Founded in 1693, The College of William & Mary is the second oldest institution of higher learning in the United States. A frontrunner when it offered its first business-oriented class in 1798, the College still maintains a reputation of excellence and innovation. It has continued to win acclaim, receiving the "Hottest Small State School" award in 2005 from Newsweek Magazine and being ranked 33rd among all public universities in 2008 by US News & World Report. William & Mary, with its ivy-covered brick buildings and majestic trees, looks like the quintessential college campus.

On-Campus Housing is available in the Lettie Pate Whitehead Evan Graduate Housing Complex on South Henry Street. The complex, designed specifically for graduate students, offers two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments within walking distance to the School of Business. Students choosing to live off-campus have a variety of privately managed living options in Williamsburg.
