Transforming the Maryland Residential Experience

The Departments of Resident Life, Residential Facilities and the Office of the Vice-President for Student Affairs have developed a fifteen year strategic plan for our on-campus housing program. It is a bold plan that will serve as a road-map for the construction of more than 3,000 new beds, the demolition of our most outdated residence halls, and the renovation and refurbishment of most of our remaining halls over the next 15 years.

Concurrent with physical improvements, the plan outlines a vision of the Maryland Residential Experience focused on serving the needs of undergraduate students in their freshman and sophomore years and offering those students a housing experience that is engaging, diverse and an indispensable component of their academic success.

  • Elevate the quality of the undergraduate experience by providing enriched educational opportunities and academic support to students in residence halls through continued partnering with academically-led Living-Learning Programs.
  • Ensure that Resident Life and Residential Facilities continue to meet the University‚Äôs culture of excellence.
  • Build a residential program that fosters a spirit of engagement and community among students, staff and faculty.
  • Recruit, retain and graduate an excellent and diverse student population.
