It can be difficult to settle into a new city, navgiate housing, uncover resources and network to build friendships and community. This guide below is a start!
Incoming graduate students in the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering who need housing accommodations while looking for a place to live can contact the Off-Campus Housing Office to obtain information about living in Baltimore. In addition, the periodic Transitional Graduate Housing Program allows students to stay on campus between June and the end of July. This program has very limited availability so students should contact the housing office for additional information. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or (410) 516-7961.
When setting up in a new place, it is important to be prepared for some of these eventualities:
All new graduate students are expected to attend the Welcome Week events, including orientation. The schedule outlines all activities leading up to and including the day of orientation itself. The Office of Graduate Admissions and Enrollment offers campus tours; and The Office of International Services partners with the Graduate Affairs offices to present programs for new international graduate students as well as diversity events.
Graduate students are subject to specific tax filing guidelines by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). As a guide through this process the IRS provides Publication 970, which spells out all tax obligations for students.
