Phone Service: Local phone service is available to guests in their residence hall room or apartment.  Guests must provide their own analog phone.  There is a non-refundable service fee of $29.50 to set up local phone service.  If you choose to change rooms, you will have to pay $29.50 to move the service to the new room.  Rates are based on length of stay:

Thereafter:                                                            0%

Special consideration will be given for cancellation due to medical problems or active military duty after the second week if you have provided documentation for the refund exemption.

CHANGES

A thirty day written notice of arrival/departure changes in advance of arrival date is required to prevent being charged for the dates on the reservation request form/assignment letter. Any change of dates may invalidate the apartment assignment. No change of dates will be permitted once residents arrive.

CANCELLATION

Cancellation requests must be submitted in writing to the Summer Housing Office. A resident granted approval from the Assistant Director of Housing, Summer Rentals, for cancellation will forfeit their advance payment.

REFUND POLICY

Advance deposits will only be refunded for emergency medical reasons of leaseholder or spouse. All medical reasons must be substantiated in writing by a medical physician as soon as possible but no less than 30 days prior to arrival date and submitted with cancellation request.

SUMMER LEASE

At the time of check-in, leaseholders must sign the UMD Summer Lease. The lease is binding for the entire length of time documented on the lease agreement.

FOOD SERVICE DINING CENTER

Included in the rental rate is a "Summer Dining Dollars" meal card good for meals which can be used for breakfast, lunch or dinner at any of the UMD food service locations.

The Dining Center offers hot entrees, grill items, fresh bakery, salad bar, ice cream, and desserts. Burgers, pizza, sandwiches, and other entrees can be purchased at the Plaza Food Court. All area purchases can be made with a meal card or on a cash basis.

The meal card is issued at the Dining Center at the time of your first meal. The value of the "Summer Dining Dollars" meal card is $200 for eight and ten week renters and $100 for five week renters. There are no refunds for meals not used on the meal cards. You may add money to your meal card at any time.
