Hey! I'm a college student in Oklahoma wanting to go to William and Mary for grad school. As I am not familiar with Virginia at all, I need to learn all I can. Cost of living, availability of housing...what's around etc.

Williamsburg is a great area and there is plenty of housing available. My son rented off campus during a few of his years there but was a few years back so I don't know what the prices are now. He lived at home when he did his grad degree but I thought he said they even had grad student housing available. Either way, I think you will be able to find something for a reasonable price. I would look at craigslist as a starting point. I would suggest you post this under Hampton Roads though as Williamsburg is in that region so you may get more responses.

Virginia is very nice especially if you love history! CW is a great fun place for college kids. You are also within short driving distance to Richmond , Norfolk, and Virginia Beach. There is lots to do in Hampton Roads. The winter is very mild. You get a nice taste of 4 Seasons. The summers are nice and long.

A good place for housing information is William & Mary's Student Information Network Housing Center:
SIN - Housingcenter

There is a good selection of apartment communities as well as room rentals in Williamsburg. I would say that 1 bedroom apartments run about $700-$900. People often rent out rooms in their homes for around $500-$600.

What kind of graduate program are you looking into?
