University of Maryland Veterans Housing Scholarship Fund
The University of Maryland Veterans Housing Scholarship was created in 2012 through the generosity of a local housing corporation to support a Veteran student or family member who needs assistance with living arrangements. The scholarship provides a room in one of our generous housing sponsors' properties. Thank you to Southern Management Corporation, Monument Village, and University View for their generous contributions to the 2017-2018 housing scholarships.

Many students at the University of Maryland decide to live off campus. The University has a portal that allows students to post and find roommates that offer affordable alternatives to living on campus at http://www.och.umd.edu.

The new G.I. Bill provides a monthly basic allowance for housing (BAH) payment for those who qualify. This calculator will show you the amount you are eligible for. Remember, the percentage you receive will be dependent upon your duty status and/or time spent on active duty. You must use the E-5 rate and select if you have dependents or not.
