Welcome Newly Admitted Students
Welcome Newly Admitted Students!

The Department of Resident Life extends a warm “Congratulations” on your admission to the University of Maryland. This is quite an accomplishment and you should feel proud to be among the select group of students invited to begin your college journey here at Maryland. Every new first-year student who desires to live in campus residence halls must complete the 2018-2019 Housing/Dining Services Agreement by May 1, 2018 to be eligible to live on campus.

For Fall 2018, the priority deadline to submit a request for housing for incoming Freshmen and Freshmen Connection students was May 1. If you are interested in on-campus housing and would like to be added to the wait-list for consideration on a space available basis, please click on the Apply for Housing button below to submit the 2018-2019 Housing and Dining Agreement.

Our goal is to offer housing to as many waitlisted students as possible; however, we cannot guarantee that an on-campus residence hall assignment will be provided to waitlisted students by the start of Fall classes. Additionally, given the number of first-year students on the waitlist who have priority in the Housing Commitments Policy, it is unlikely there will be enough housing availability to offer transfer students an assignment for Fall 2018
