The comprehensive fee includes tuition, fees and room & board, but it's not the full story, because we know there are other costs associated with your coming to Williams. Your actual cost to attend will be specific to your circumstances.

Something important to know: There are no "hidden" costs at Williams, such as charges for the use of athletic, computer, recreational, or lab facilities. Likewise, basic health care is provided free of charge at the campus health center. While all students must carry health insurance, Williams covers the cost of the college's insurance all aided students who required to enroll - approximately 35 percent of students receiving financial aid.

Campus events such as concerts, films, plays, lectures, dance performances, athletic events rarely cost students more than a dollar or two at the door, and many events are free with a Williams I.D. And there are no fraternities, sororities, or eating clubs at Williams that would require extra fees.

A note about living off campus

Should you be approved to live off campus as a senior, we assume that your costs for rent, utilities, and food will be similar to the cost of Williams room and board. For 2022-23 the budget includes $7,900 in housing expenses for a 9-month period (September to May), which equates to approximately $878 per month for rent and utilities. Likewise, your budget allows for $7,630 for food, or $848 per month. Staying within these expense guidelines will ensure that your financial aid award is adequate to meet your needs. Additional Williams grant funding is not available if living off campus proves more expensive than living on campus; however, more loan or campus employment may be available.
