Welcome to South Campus Commons!

We are excited to welcome our SCC Terps back to campus in August 2019! We will soon be in the midst of preparing for your arrival and look forward to greeting you on the designated move-in day.

As a reminder, our move-in day for August 2019 is:

Sunday, August 18th from 10 AM to 5 PM

You may move in at any point after that date, but please be aware that the most resources will be available during the official move-in time and day.  On other days and times, staff availability, move-in resources, and parking can be limited.

If you have questions regarding move-in, please feel free to contact us via email at southcampuscommons@cocm.com or via phone at (301) 314-2499.


On move-in day

At check-in, you can take advantage of:

  • Unloading zones monitored by UMD Police & DOTS staff
  • Dedicated check-in stations
  • Large moving carts
  • Staff availability to quickly address your questions

Please be prepared to offer your University ID card or Driver’s License to use a cart.  Due to the limited number of moving carts, it is also recommended that families bring their own moving equipment as well to supplement what is offered.

You will also need your University of Maryland ID card to check-in and receive your keys.

Room Condition Reports

Upon move-in, residents must assess the condition of their room and apartment by completing an online Room Condition Report (RCR) documenting the condition of their space at the time of move-in.  Upon move-out, an inspection of their apartment is completed comparing the condition at move-in with the condition at move-out, to determine what is not normal wear and tear.  If an RCR is not completed or submitted, their room and apartment will be inspected with the assumption that all items and furniture were in satisfactory condition with no damage at move-in. The RCR is located on the resident portal.

Alternatively, the RCR can also be accessed via an app, available for both Android and Apple.  See links below to download:

Please note, you must be registered for the resident portal to use the app.
