Upper-class students may apply to live in one of four apartment communities: Hillside, Terrace, Walker Avenue and West Hill. All of UMBC’s apartments have kitchens and four single occupancy bedrooms, with shared bath and common living areas. A cable television hook-up and individually controlled heating and air conditioning are standard. Apartment residents pay their own monthly electric “utility” bills (except in Walker Avenue where utilities are included in monthly rent). Common areas are furnished with a loveseat or sofa, a chair, an end table, a dining/study table, and four dining/study chairs. Room furnishings include a bed, a dresser, a desk, and a chair. The bedrooms and living areas are carpeted. Each apartment community contains six to eight individually named buildings.
Walker Avenue Apartments have two, three and four bedroom units. Utilities are included in rental costs. Laundry units are located inside each apartment unit. Walker Avenue apartments are managed by Capstone On Campus but include Residential Life services.
Students living in the apartments have 24 hour access to the Community Center located adjacent to Walker Avenue. The Community Center features a laundry room, great room with TV, and two meeting spaces.
