Off-Campus Housing Services is pleased to announce that we will be launching a new & improved off-campus housing database! This new database will replace OCH101 and will offer a more stream-lined and user-friendly experience for the UMD community as well as area property managers/landlords. The new UMD Off-Campus Housing Database is set to launch mid-October 2015. Click here to be the first to find out when we go live!

  • Information: extensive handout series with information about conducting your housing search, safety & security, apartments located on Shuttle-UM routes, signing a lease, and much more.
  • Roommate Finder:  online searchable database where you can create your own profile and search for others with similar housing needs and interests.
