GETTING READY FOR THE LEASING PROCESS
You should take the time to look over the following items so you can be prepared for the leasing process. If you do not have all of the required payments and paperwork on the leasing date you are issued, you will NOT be able to lease and may lose your space to the next waitlist applicant.
Lease Reservation and Application Fees
- Your application fee ($25) and lease reservation fee ($300) will be due at your leasing appointment, when you sign your lease. Please be sure to have two separate checks or money orders, made out to the Courtyards, ready for your leasing appointment.
2013-2014 Sample Lease
- Review the sample lease with anyone you need to consult about your decision, such as parents or guarantors. The sample lease is the exact agreement you will sign at your leasing appointment. The only
difference between the sample version and your individual lease is the designation of a specific room number and a corresponding rental rate.
Additional information about eligibility and priority, information sessions, and a comprehensive list of frequently asked questions can be found on the Resident Life website.
IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS FOR YOUR REVIEW/USE
The University of Maryland offers a program in South Campus Commons and The Courtyards where students of different genders can choose to live within the same apartment. South Campus Commons and The Courtyards offer apartment-style housing with the private bedrooms. These apartments also have multiple, lockable bathrooms within each unit; allowing residents of the apartment to designate each bathroom for use by a specific gender.
A limited number of apartments are designated as program units.
