Understanding the Assignment Process

Freshmen assignments are made in the date-order that the On-Campus Housing and Dining Agreement is received, and based on available vacancies. Assignments are located in all of our communities. Freshmen assignments are in double, triple, or quad rooms. While we strive to meet preferences or requests received, we may not be able to meet all of them.

Housing Requests

Students can let Resident Life know about any preferences or requests through their Resident Life Profile. You can access your Profile by logging in to your Housing Portal.

Bed Sizes

All beds have regular twin-sized mattresses that fit standard size sheets. Extra-long sheets will fit comfortably as well when using mattress pads and/or egg crate mattress pads.

Extra Long Bed Request

We have a minimum height requirement of 6' 5" for students wishing to have an extra-long twin bed. Before we can process your request, you will need to provide documentation to confirm you meet our minimum height requirement. The documentation can be a copy of your state-issued driver's license or ID card, or a note from your doctor.

After you receive your final housing assignment, please forward your documentation to the Assignments Office by fax to (301) 314-2026 or e-mail to reslife@umd.edu. After your documentation is received, you will receive an e-mail confirming whether your request has been approved. If you have any questions, please contact the office at (301) 314-2100.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I make housing requests?
Students can let Resident Life know about any preferences or requests through their Resident Life Profile. You can access your Profile by logging in to your Housing Portal.

When will I know my assignment and roommate information?
Now that you are confirmed for on-campus housing, you will receive an assignment in the residence halls. The first, large-scale release of assignments and roommate information for Fall 2020 will be in early August.

How do I request a roommate?
Students may request a roommate via the Housing Portal once this option is live. Roommate requests must be mutual. We will do our best to honor as many requests as possible although it is important to note that many factors are considered including Living and Learning Program placements and occupancy availability.

When is Move-in for the Fall 2020 semester?
Move-in for the fall semester is scheduled for Thursday through Saturday, August 27-30, 2020 * . Your specific date and time to move in will be based on your final housing assignment. Once assignments are released, students will be informed of their designated check-in day and time.
