William & Mary is embarking on a Housing and Dining Master Plan to position the University to meet strategic needs of the future. This first phase, to be complete in 2025, will deliver new housing for 935 students at West Woods on the west campus, as well as housing for 269 students in a new facility adjacent to Lemon and Hardy Halls along Jamestown Road to meet the housing needs of first- and second-year students.

The new residence halls, configured into modern living units and community spaces, will be conditioned using geothermal heating and air conditioning, in support of William & Mary’s Climate Action Roadmap, which calls for a carbon-neutral campus by 2030. As part of the project, fossil-fuel-dependent systems in Lemon and Hardy Halls will also be transitioned to geothermal energy. On the West Woods site, a new ~50,000 GSF dining facility will become the signature eatery on campus, offering patrons a serene dining experience nestled in the woods.
