New Student Application
You are here
Check out this tutorial on how to fill out the New Student Application.
The priority deadline for completing your housing application was May 1st, 2017.
Students completing their housing applications after May 1st will be placed on our housing waitlist. Housing will contact students on the waitlist via email to offer housing assignments in our on-campus apartments or in temporary accommodations as space becomes 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 Advisement & Registration, 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 May 1st: $150 refund
- Cancellation emailed to UMD Housing between May 2nd or May 31st: $75 refund
- Cancellation emailed to UMD Housing after May 31st: $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.
The deadline to finalize roommate requests is June 1st. Students may search for roommates via the housing portal. Please note that housing priority is determined by the later application for admission date amongst the roommate group. Your priority may be decreased based upon your roommate choices.
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.
