Right now I'm looking for housing for next year. I called Fayette Square and it appears they're real low on availability (particularly one bedroom apartments). So now its on to Pascault Row to see what they have and what its like. Anyone else have any good links or ideas for housing in and around Baltimore so everyone can get a leg up on the apartment hunt?

I live in Mount Vernon in Baltimore; I'm starting school at UMD in the fall. I love Mount Vernon. I've been here a couple of years It's a diverse and beautiful neighborhood; you can walk to a lot of great restaurants, bars, museums, shops, and the train station (with commuter rail service to DC). The law school is only about a mile away, so I plan on walking down there. Housing in this neighborhood is pretty reasonable. I would recommend checking on the Baltimore Craig's list for apartments or check the Baltimore City Paper. I live in a 2 bedroom with my boyfriend and pay about $390/month.

Hey, thanks for posting and registering! I think I've decided I'm just going to stick with University Suites at Fayette Square, and get into a 2 or 3 bedroom place. It would be nearly 1000 bucks to live alone at one of the private apartments around campus and there would be a walk. This way I figure it's right across the street, only about 800 a month, and I can't imagine roommates (as long as they're other law students) are going to be a big hassle. So, if you're looking to do the same thing, let me know and maybe we can room together, at least for the first year. Right now, I'm just going to put down a preference sheet for potential roommates. But good luck to everyone finding housing and if you've got any other suggestions, put them down on here!

I'm sure most everyone knows this already, but I just thought I'd post the UMaryland housing website. Its got basically all of the local private communities listed and linked, as well as University Suites and Pascault Row (the 2 university affiliated housing areas) and basically a CraigsList of advertisements for roommates and renters all over Baltimore. It's at http://www.housing.umaryland.edu/ . Check it out and post if you've gotten any word back or have opinions of any of the places on there so the rest of us can benefit from what you know.

Hey...I'll be attending UMD Law in the Fall too and I wanted to get into the University Suites at Fayette too. Any idea about the availability now? I just decided this week that I would be attending UMD so I didn't get a chance to call Fayette Square before the weekend but I imagine they're all pretty full by now. I wanted to get into a 2 bedroom or 3 bedroom if available? I'm not too keen on living anywhere else for my first year at least since these seem to be the closest to the law school and safe as well.....

Hey, first and foremost, congrats on picking Maryland and I'm sure we're all glad you made that choice. I'm going to be living at University Suites in the fall. I got in touch with them about a month ago and they said they were "approaching capacity". I managed to get a two bedroom apartment there (or so I think), so they were still available when I called. They said I would have had no problem at all getting a three bedroom apartment, so maybe there's still some available. I'm sure they are going to try to make it seem like its packed for the fall so that they can get your money quicker, so I would bet there's still some space. It does look like a really nice building (and it's all gated in) and it's definitely close to the law school. Just try giving them a call and ask if there's anything still available. Good luck! If you can't get into University Suites, I've looked into a lot of the other buildings around the area during my housing search, so feel free to pop a question back on the board. And again, congrats on choosing Maryland and I'll see you in the fall!
