Lodging Hotel and on-campus housing options

On-Campus Housing

Washington and Lee is proud to offer conveniently located and affordable on-campus housing. Attendees may arrive as early as Monday, June 13 and may depart on Friday, June 17. Graham-Lees is the oldest residential building on campus. Two earlier dorms, Graham and Lees, were joined in 1940 to make this U-shaped residence hall for first-year students. Graham-Lees underwent renovations during the 2014-2015 academic year and was completed in the Summer of 2015.  The renovated Graham-Lees Hall provides for traditional single and double rooms in a series of alcoves/pods.
