St. Mary's College of Maryland

Expanded Housing

Due to the number of new, incoming students (first-year and transfers) combined with the number of returning students we have, we may use some double rooms as triples and some study rooms as quad bedrooms.

Doubles-as-Triples

Housing assignments were made based on the date the new student’s deposit was received in the Business Office. Students could be assigned to temporary doubles-as-triples in Caroline, Dorchester, Prince George, and Queen Anne because their deposits were received in late April or later.  The Calvert triples are not affected by this information because they were designed to be triples. These tripled rooms have two bunked beds, one lofted bed, three desks, three chairs, three dressers, and two closets. Each room has three data ports, two phone lines, and two windows. The rooms being tripled were selected because they are larger than our standard double rooms. Students in these rooms will be asked to work on roommate agreements in conjunction with their RA.

We have no way of predicting exactly when we will be able to move all of the students out of the temporary triples if we have to use them. As vacancies occur, we will break down the doubles-as-triples in deposit date order (earliest to latest). Once classes begin, students living in involuntary doubles-as-triples will receive a $40/person/week credit on their student accounts as long as the students stay in the involuntary triple. We will do our best to move students into standard double rooms ASAP, but it may take weeks or even the full semester before that can be accomplished. If the students cannot agree which one will leave the triple, we will move the one with the latest deposit date, or if all three have the same date, one will be randomly chosen. If a vacancy opens up and the three students wish to remain together voluntarily for the semester, the credit will be discontinued at that point.

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Residence Life. We appreciate your understanding as we do what we can to accommodate all of our students who wish to live on-campus.

Studies as Bedrooms

Students were assigned to studies/quads in Caroline, Dorchester, Prince George, and Queen Anne because their deposits were received in mid to late April, or after the deposit deadline of May 1. The Calvert quads are not affected by this information because they are designed to be quads. The studies have two sets of bunked beds, four desks, four chairs, four dressers, and four wardrobes. There are four data ports and four phone lines in each room. Students in these rooms will be asked to work on roommate agreements in conjunction with their RA.

We have no way of predicting exactly when we will be able to move students out of the studies. As vacancies occur, we will break down the doubles-as-triples first, followed by the studies/quads. We will do our best to get students into standard double rooms ASAP, but it will take weeks and possibly the full semester before that can be accomplished. We will break down the studies based on deposit dates (earlier deposits will be moved out first).
