Be an On-Campus Terp

Our residence hall community is a wonderful place to engage, learn, discover, and be immersed in all the University of Maryland has to offer. Join a diverse group of talented peers from across the country and around the world who have chosen the on-campus Maryland Residential Experience.

Living On Campus

Home Away From Home

There's nothing like bonding with your floormates and creating lifelong friendships when living on-campus. You'll be surrounded by students experiencing similar journeys and have support when you need it. From hall and community programs to athletic and campus events, to leadership roles and on-campus employment, your calendar will be full and your skills will soar!

Be front and center for the excitement of move-in - join the Terp Welcome Crew (TWC) and greet students curbside, assist with move-in, and promote Fall Welcome events.
