There are about 8,900 beds in 37 residence halls and the 625-bed Leonardtown apartment community. Most students live in double rooms and have one roommate. About 13% of all beds are in triple or quad rooms, where students have two or three roommates. Single rooms (no roommate) are assigned solely to returning residence hall students through a seniority system; there is no access to single rooms for new-to-housing students, including for reasons of a medical condition or disability. New-to-housing students may request assignments in traditional "dormitory-style" residence halls (most without air conditioning) or in furnished, carpeted and air-conditioned apartments or suites.

Every fraternity and sorority at the University of Maryland, while social in nature, was established by their founders based on a commitment to certain values: brotherhood and sisterhood, service, scholarship, philanthropy and more. They believed that united rather than apart, they could make men better men, and women better women. Our vision is of a community that lives by the values upon which fraternities and sororities were founded.
