UMBC Residential Life offers a wide variety of housing styles and options for undergraduate students. Most students begin their experience living on campus in one of our traditional hall or suite style communities: Chesapeake, Susquehanna, Patapsco, Potomac, Erickson, and Harbor. Upper-class students may apply to live in one of four apartment communities: Hillside, Terrace, Walker Avenue and West Hill. Walker Avenue apartments are managed by Capstone On Campus but include Residential Life services.
We encourage you explore floor plans and options by following the links on the quick reference chart below.
