Incoming exchange students will be housed in on-campus accommodation. Visiting exchange students are housed in UMBC’s Harbor Residence Hall (ISEP students) or apartments. Students have a shared room and share living and bath facilities with other UMBC students (in apartments students have a private bedroom and there are some private bedrooms in Harbor Hall). All residential communities at UMBC are within easy walking distance of all campus buildings. Students are required to purchase a meal plan (Harbor Hall only) and if you are staying for a full academic year, you are also required to purchase a supplemental $50 meal-plan for the January term.
You should plan on bringing your own bed linen and towels etc. Beds at UMBC are sized as extra-long twin.
