Students on steps with Testudo

Student Life

Outside the classroom, the Division of Student Affairs has services and programs to help students get the most out of their Terrapin experience. We provide programs and services through 15 departments to support and enrich students’ personal, social, and intellectual development at the University of Maryland.

We provide many services to meet all the basic needs for college life – living; eating; working; getting to, from, and around campus; staying healthy; developing learning skills; seeking help when needed; finding a job; and above all - enjoying the campus experience. 

We also offer opportunities for getting involved on campus – student organizations, recreational sports, internships, fraternities and sororities, community service and civic engagement, and dozens of other opportunities to develop leadership skills and diversity competence.
