Welcome to Housing at Maryland

We are excited for you to join us as a member of the University of Maryland residence hall community! Our residence halls are home to thousands of students who have chosen to be part of an academic community. Living and studying alongside your fellow Terps and starting your academic career living on campus will help you form friendships and make connections that will last through your graduation and beyond!

Each resident has an important role to play in the success of our community. We want you to be active and engaged in shaping your Maryland Residential Experience, and we hope our Community Living Principles will serve as a guide for how you navigate this experience. These principles guide each resident’s actions to promote the best of what the community has to offer. As you live with us, we encourage you to be safe, be civil, be cooperative, and be involved.

Living on campus offers you a unique opportunity to engage with and learn from your peers who bring different identities and perspectives. We encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and get to know others in your residence hall. Real connection and learning come not from simple acquaintanceship but from investing in meaningful relationships.

We have caring and talented staff throughout the Department of Resident Life who are available to you and your family members when you need us. Our staff will support your academic success on your path to graduation, challenge your intellectual, personal, and social development, and are available 24/7 to assist you. We are excited for you to join us and we look forward to seeing you during residence hall move-in!

With Terrapin Pride,

Dennis Passarella-George,
Associate Director of Resident Life for South Campus
