Summer Housing

Residential Life will offer limited summer housing for eligible UMBC students in Harbor Hall.

Summer Housing Eligibility

To be eligible for residence, students must be admitted and enrolled as an undergraduate, graduate, or special non-degree seeking student at UMBC and meet one of the following conditions:

  • Enrolled in at least one course each session;
  • Employed, and granted return to work/campus status, by the University for the summer session; or
  • Have a permanent address that is more than 30 miles from UMBC’s campus and is enrolled in a UMBC approved in-person internship in the Baltimore metro area.

Non-UMBC students who may be in the Baltimore/DC Metro area due to an internship and are looking for Summer Housing opportunities should visit Intern Housing HUB.

Departments seeking to sponsor summer students, groups or interns are encouraged to view The Residential Life Guide for UMBC Departments.
