To the Classes of 2018, 2019, & 2020,
Though the summer is barely upon us, I write today…
  • to highlight a new check-in process that we’ll be piloting this fall,
  • to remind you of move-in dates for the upcoming fall semester, and
  • to remind you of how to access meals prior to the official start of the fall semester meal plan.
You can always find regular opening & closing dates for campus housing at this link. Dates are typically put out at least 18 months in advance (sometimes even earlier), so as always, please plan your travel accordingly.
Be sure to read everything below, and plan accordingly. Best wishes for a wonderful summer.

Director, Office of Student Life

In-Person Check-In
When you arrive to campus to move in, you’ll be checking in with a member of the OSL staff to receive your room key/code along with some general housing information – be sure to have your Williams ID with you.
The schedule & location for both early arrivals and for regular arrivals are noted below.

Fall 2017 Regular Arrivals

All Check-ins are at the Office of Student Life, Paresky 2nd floor. All times listed are Eastern time.

Students not involved in one of the early arrival activities listed farther below do not need to return to campus until classes begin on Thursday, September 7.

You may move into campus housing as early as Wednesday, August 30 @ 2pm​–giving you several days before classes start for travel, as well as some extra time to settle into your room if you choose to do so.
 
So, to be clear: unless you’re involved in the various pre-semester activities listed farther below, you won’t have access to campus housing until after 2pm onWednesday, August 30. If you arrive before your day ​and ​time to move in, you need to make your own accommodations elsewhere off-campus.
