Additional Info
Each apartment will house four residents in single occupancy rooms. Room assignments will be made based on the information you provide on your on-line application. Residents will be assigned roommates with similar lengths of stay. For example: a student needing housing for the entire summer would be assigned a roommate also needing housing for the entire summer. Roommate requests will be honored whenever possible within these guidelines. Roommate changes are not available in summer housing after taking occupancy.

Students must purchase an on-campus parking pass for the summer. These cost $60 and must be paid directly to Parking Services via cash or check.

Meningitis Vaccine or Waiver
All students in UMBC summer housing must provide proof of the Meningitis vaccine or sign the waiver. This must be confirmed before you will be given a key and allowed to move in.
