Living on campus at St. Mary’s College of Maryland is truly a unique experience. We provide a wide variety of housing options for our students, depending on class standing and preferences.
Our housing program has a developmental focus. All first-year students start off in our traditional residence halls (Caroline, Dorchester, Prince George, or Queen Anne) where there is structured supervision, programming, and support available. Many students (though not all) then move to the suites (Lewis Quad or Waring Commons), where there is less staff supervision and more resident responsibility.
Finally, upper-class students (juniors and seniors only) may move into the Townhouses or Waring Commons apartments where there is considerably less supervision and significantly more independence, freedom, and responsibility. Each of our buildings plays a part in promoting an excellent residential experience.
