Find Housing/A Roommate

All parties posting/advertising properties through UMBC’s Off-Campus Student Services housing portal have certified that the properties advertised are available to students in conformity with all pertinent federal and state laws and regulations on non-discrimination regarding race, color, national origin, ancestry, ethnic background, genetics, disability, age, sex, gender identity and expression, marital status, sexual orientation, religion, creed, and/or veteran status. Parties posting/advertising properties have also certified that the property is in compliance with the applicable fire safety codes. UMBC employees do not inspect these properties. It is also understood that UMBC does not provide off-campus housing and neither the properties posted nor the rental parties are screened. All parties entering into a lease agreement should exercise due care and provide for their own personal safety and comfort. Landlord/tenant agreements are for housing only, and do not ensure personal safety or collegiality. As such, UMBC cannot vouch for landlords or tenants. UMBC reserves the right to refuse or delete any posting at any time.
