Admitted Student Open House

Congratulations on your admission to Maryland! Join us on campus for an Admitted Student Open House to explore what it's like to be a Terp.

Admitted Student Open Houses invite the newest Maryland students and their families to experience everything the University of Maryland has to offer. During the event, you’ll spend the morning with faculty and staff from your admitted college, and meet with students and campus representatives throughout the afternoon as you learn more about the university’s special programs and exciting student life. This is your opportunity to explore our beautiful campus and learn more about life as a Terp. 

We encourage all registered guests to download the TERPlife app to take advantage of a free and easy way to get the most out of your visit. Available for iOS and Android, simply download the app, search for "Admitted Student Open House" and begin viewing the day's sessions and tours, designing a schedule that best meets your interests and utilizing all the other resources you'll have at your fingertips! Stay connected using our free guest wifi.

If your preferred date does not appear on the registration page, that date is currently at capacity. Please check back frequently, as space will open as cancellations are processed. We are unable to add guests when an event is full and we do not keep a waitlist, due to space restrictions and in keeping with the university's building fire and safety codes.

Our next Admitted Student Open House events will be held on:

March 9, 2018 │ March 30, 2018 │ April 6, 2018 │ April 13, 2018

Terps love a challenge. A problem that needs a solution. A barrier that needs breaking down. You are smart, scrappy and determined. You value diversity, innovation, entrepreneurship and imagination. Ready to start your fearless journey?


You can only learn so much about a school from a brochure. Even if we tell you how beautiful our campus is, or how fantastic our students and faculty are, you will not know for yourself until you experience it for yourself!

Come try on our campus for size! Stop by one of our top-notch athletic facilities. Have a scoop of homemade ice cream at the Dairy. Rub the nose of one of our beloved Testudo statues for good luck. Get all your questions answered. It won't be hard to picture yourself at home here for the next four years.
