On-campus housing is not available for SOE students at any of our three locations, but there are many options for those needing a place to live close to our buildings in Baltimore, Columbia and Rockville.
Please note public transportation is not available from the Homewood Campus to the Columbia Center or the MCC. In most programs, students are expected to travel to different campuses for classes. Traveling time during the non-rush hours between Homewood and Columbia is 35 minutes and 40 from Columbia to the MCC in Rockville, MD (approximate times - depending on routes of travel).
