Living on campus gives you a chance to be part of an energetic campus community. You have space to study, relax and explore. Freshmen live in one of five residence halls while transfer and upperclass students may apply to live in the residence halls, suites or apartments. Continuous occupancy housing is available to students who need to stay on campus during university break periods.
You can request substance-free housing, quiet lifestyle floors or one of our varied Living-Learning Communities (LLCs). Each of these communities is tailored to the specific needs and interests of the students living within. There are LLCs for students interested in technology, humanities, intercultural communication, civic engagement, leadership, visual and performing arts, honors college students and students who are still exploring their major options.
Visit the Office of Residential Life to learn more about campus housing options and communities.
Students living off-campus can get additional support from Off-Campus Student Services (OCSS). OCSS offers ongoing services, programs, academic and social support, and educational opportunities to help off-campus students successful navigate UMBC and the life after college.
