Welcome, Future Terps!

We’re thrilled you’re considering the University of Maryland for college. Maryland Hillel is home to one of the most exciting and vibrant Jewish communities on any college campus.

Planning Your Visit

We look forward to welcoming you to campus! Visit us the Rosenbloom Hillel Center (7612 Mowatt Lane), right across the street from the business school, and one of our staff members or student interns can chat with you about Jewish life on campus and show you around our building! You can stop by whenever works best for you from Monday to Friday at 9:30 AM – 5 PM.

Spend a Shabbat

For seniors in high school who would like to visit for a Shabbat on campus, we’re happy to assist in fixing you up with current students who are willing to host. Complete this form at least 7 days before you plan to visit. Note: Due to demand, we are not able to coordinate an overnight stay for 11th graders.

Admitted Students Weekend

In order to give you a taste of what Jewish life is like at UMD, we offer an Admitted Students Weekend with Maryland Hillel in February.

Grab a Bite to Eat

During the week, dine with us in our Kosher dining hall for lunch or dinner. You can join as a walk-in guest and pay with credit card. For Shabbat, you must sign up and pay ahead of time for dinner and lunch.
