There are a number of resources that may help on your journey to becoming a Terp. Review the topics below that may be of interest, and for additional resources, the Transfer Experience Network Transfer Student Resource website has information for transfer students before and after they transfer to UMD.



On-campus housing is limited and not guaranteed for transfer students. Different housing styles have different costs. Contact the Department of Resident Life as soon as you’ve been admitted to see what opportunities you may have for on-campus housing. 

Off Campus Housing Services is an office that can help admitted students search for housing.  Off Campus Housing may be cheaper than on campus housing but often further away from campus.


Parking on campus is available but at a cost and not necessarily close to academic buildings.

Shuttle-UM bus lines are free to admitted students with a valid UMD student ID.  Students should keep the shuttle service routes in mind when they are searching for housing if they are interested in trying to avoid parking fees.

Further information for your options for housing both on and off-campus and information about commuting to campus is available on the Transfer Resource Website.

Anyone who has a documented disability is eligible to apply for reasonable accommodations. An individual with one or more physical or mental impairments that interfere with major life activities might qualify for reasonable accommodations. Accommodations are determined during the registration process and on an individualized basis. Students can find out more by visiting the Accessibility & Disability Service Office at UMD.
