Residential Life


Patapsco East & South is the only continuous occupancy residence hall. It is open for the entire academic year, while Chesapeake, Erickson, Potomac, Susquehanna, and most of Harbor close for Thanksgiving, winter and spring breaks. Residents who need to stay on campus during breaks can stay in the hall. The fall of 1972 saw the opening of Patapsco Hall. Patapsco's basement was the site of Residential Life's administrative offices until 1982, when the offices were moved to the Hillcrest Building. Patapsco Hall is named for the Patapsco River which flows through Baltimore to the Bay, and supports Maryland's major shipping industry. In 2010, the west wing was opened, adding more rooms to Potapsco Hall.
Patapsco's large community/meeting room is frequently the site of aerobics and martial arts classes. Patapsco's Quiet Lifestyle Floor is located in Basement East.
