Living on campus at Maryland is highly regarded, and there can be a waiting list for students to move onto campus each year. Additionally, the Department of Resident Life’s commitment of guaranteed housing for first-year students has often led to double rooms becoming triple and even lounges being transformed into quads. Be prepared for healthy, safe, but possibly cramped living quarters. A number of single rooms exists for students with the highest on-campus-living priority level.
Resident assistants continue to promote UMCP’s dedication to student development by saying, “Dorms are for sleeping, and residence halls are for living and learning." So the eight-floor high-rises on North Campus are probably not appropriate for students who aren't interested in living in such an education- and growth-focused living environment. For the best general on-campus living experience, shoot for La Plata Hall, an air-conditioned, coed high-rise, which continues to be one of the best halls on North Campus. On South Campus, apartments and suites offer upperclassmen more freedom and responsibility since many of them have shared living areas. The buildings are set up similarly to off-campus apartments, except that Resident Life staff members manage them.
