Mission

The mission of Off-Campus Housing Services at the University of Maryland is to support members of the UM community in making well-informed decisions that enable them to enjoy a positive off-campus living experience.

To that end, Off-Campus Housing Services:

  • Provides personalized information and resources about housing and off-campus living.
  • Fosters students’ education in becoming responsible members of the communities in which they live.
  • Supports University-wide efforts to increase the quantity and quality of affordable housing options.
  • Supports University-wide efforts to increase off-campus students’ access to University services.

We accomplish this mission using “high tech” approaches including an internet database of available housing options and “high-touch” efforts including one-on-one assistance and delivery of campus-wide programs and events.
