Concerts have regularly been held at the College of William and Mary in various buildings as well as outdoors. Organizations such as the Choir, Wind Ensemble, and other similar groups have regular concerts throughout the year, while national and regional touring acts perform on campus at various times throughout the year. Special events during the year including Homecoming and Charter Day were reasons for regular concerts at the university in years past.

Campus locations for concerts have included William & Mary Hall, Lake Matoaka, Sadler Center, Player's Dell, Blow Hall, and Phi Beta Kappa Hall.
