Fall Welcome

The Department of Resident Life sponsors the annual Fall Welcome program to assist you in getting acclimated to the University of Maryland.

Fall Welcome will take place from Thursday, August 24 to Sunday, August 27 and features fun programs and events geared towards introducing you to new friends, university resources, and the many opportunities waiting for you. New students to campus are encouraged to participate in our Fall Welcome program, a special introduction to living on campus, which begins with check-in to your residence hall and ends on the day before classes start.

Special activities and events include:

  • Welcome meetings for new roommates, floor mates, and staff
  • Social activities, entertainment, movies, recreation, food, and more
  • Other fun events designed to help you meet lots of people and orient you to life at the University of Maryland


Dining Meal Plans

During Fall Welcome, new and returning students will be able to utilize their Anytime Dining meal plans.

Please visit the Dining Services website for more information, including dining locations and hours, during Fall Welcome as well as during the school year.
