Fall Open House

Explore what it's like to #BeATerp at our Fall Open House!

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions invites prospective students and their families to our fall visit experience. During the Fall Open House, held on October 26, 2019, you'll hear from distinguished speakers, connect with faculty and students in your college of interest and learn about unique opportunities such as the Honors College, College Park Scholars, Education Abroad and more. You get to build the day around your own unique interests!

Guest parking will be available for this event in Lot 1. If you are unable to attend the Fall Open House but still want to visit the UMD campus, we encourage you to explore our other visit options.

Registration is required.

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.
