Live on Campus

College is a big adjustment, and you will come to rely on the friendship and support you will find in your roommate or your suite- or floor-mates, or from your resident assistant (RA). It is where you will find someone to share a pizza with, watch your favorite show or host a late-night study session.

We can help you find your home away from home on campus— or off.

Nine out of 10 Maryland freshmen live in the university’s residence halls. A full half of on-campus residents are in living and learning communities— providing a great chance to bond with students with similar interests.

Our Department of Resident Life can connect you with potential on-campus roommates and help you pick the right student housing option. All university housing comes with live-in resident assistants and successful upper-class students who can help you find your groove academically and socially.


Living on campus is one of the great parts of the Maryland experience. Your residence hall isn’t just a place to sleep or study.
