Spring Semester 2024
In order to access the Housing Portal, you need to:
- Initiate your UMD Internet ID Account. If you checked your UMD admissions status online or registered for Orientation & confirmed your enrollment - this step is already completed. Only students who have been admitted to UMD will have access to the housing application.
- Activate your UMD Email Account. You'll receive housing confirmation emails and emails from potential roommates at your UMD account, so it is important that you activate your UMD email account.
Housing Installment Payment
The $200 Installment Payment is required as part of the housing application. If you cancel your housing application, you may be eligible for a partial refund based upon the following schedule.
For spring semester applications:
- If cancellation is emailed to UMD Housing on or before December 3, 2023: $150 of installment payment refunded
- If cancellation is emailed to UMD Housing after December 3, 2023: $0 of installment payment refunded
Spring semester housing applications are processed in the order they are received.
Building Preference Requests
Requests for specific buildings can be submitted on the housing application. Please note, while we work to accommodate students in one of the buildings they have indicated, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to honor all building preference requests.
You may request another student to be your roommate within the Housing Application. Please note - roommate requests are not guaranteed! If you do not request a roommate through your Housing Application, we will match with another student based upon the answers to your profile questions.
Please indicate any medical needs that may require an accommodation in the appropriate section on your housing application. Please note, however, that you must also complete the Housing Accommodations process through Disability Resources to formally request an accommodation.
