Living & Learning in Elkton Hall

Living in Elkton Hall

While Global Communities typically calls Dorchester Hall home, for the 2017-2018 academic year, GC students will live in Elkton Hall, while Dorchester Hall undergoes remodeling!

Elkton Hall is an eight-story, traditional residence hall in the Denton Communities, located in North Campus. It is home to over 500 residents, comprised of GC students, international exchange students, and other members of the UMD student community. This coed hall, with floors divided by gender, boasts a range of room sizes, from singles, doubles, triples, and quad styles, community lounges on each floor, and a large laundry room in the basement. 

The hall is conveniently located across the street from The Clarice Performance Center, minutes from the Campus Rereation Center (Eppley), two dining halls, and the Stamp Student Union. Most academic buildings and libraries are less than a 15-minute walk away and multiple University Shuttles make frequent stops in the community to help students get around campus both quickly and conveniently.

Global Communities strives to create a diverse, active and community-oriented living experience in the residences we call home. Watch some of our current students and alumni share their positive impressions of being part of a welcoming and exciting global community here
