New Student Application
You are here
Applications are now available!
Students will complete their housing application via the Housing Portal (link below). As part of the application, students will be able to request roommates and their preferences for housing. Students are required to submit a $200 installment payment and e-sign the housing contract for their housing application to be considered complete.
In order to access the Housing Portal you need to initiate your UMD Internet ID Account and activate your UMD Email Account. If you've already registered for Orientation, you've already completed these steps! You'll receive confirmation emails and emails from potential roommate at your UMD account, so it is important that you activate your UMD email account.
Initiate your UMD Internet ID Account.
You need to initiate your unique Internet ID account to get access to U of M network resources.
Activate your UMD Email Account.
Housing Installment Payments
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:
- Cancellation emailed to UMD Housing on or before December 8th: $150 refund
- Cancellation emailed to UMD Housing after December 8th: $0 refund
Priority for housing is determined by the date you submitted your application for admission to UMD, not the date you apply for housing. Applications are processed in order by the admission application date.
You may indicate the name of another student you would like to live with on your housing application.
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.
