International & Transfer Student Apartments Near UMD

Our brand-new apartments come fully furnished, including a full-sized washer/dryer, private bedroom, and bathroom options, plus stainless steel appliances. Check out our furniture flyer HERE.

We include Wi-Fi, Cable, Trash, all of the brand-new furniture in your apartment, access to our onsite amenities, and on-site maintenance! The only utilities you need to budget for in addition to rent are Water & Electric, which will be billed based on your usage monthly through our partner company, Simple Bills.

We recommend bringing items such as your personal belongings, clothes, bedding, toiletries, pots/pans/dishes/silverware, and any decorations! The major furniture/appliances will be in your apartment at move-in to make it super simple! Also, bring a form of Photo ID (License, Passport, etc.) so that you can check in and receive your keys on move-in day!

Because we lease on a first come-first-serve basis, and availability is extremely limited for Fall 2023, we can offer a Non-Enrollment Addendum. This means that you can sign your lease NOW and secure your spot at our current rates, and if you don’t get into UMD, all you need to do is send us proof that you weren’t accepted by July 26th, and you can get out of your lease! For more info on this option, please contact our Leasing Office at 240-332-1694.

We offer several options to apply and sign up to live at The Standard! Students can apply with a guarantor as long as they are at least 25 years old, have a U.S. Social Security Number, and pass a credit and income check. Students applying with a guarantor are required to pay a $100 Security Deposit. If you do not have a qualifying guarantor, there are 3 other ways to qualify!

  1. Self-Qualify: If you have a U.S. Social Security Number, make 3x your monthly base rent, and can pass a credit check, you may opt to Self-Qualify. All Self-Qualifying Applicants must provide proof of their income via 3 consecutive pay stubs and are required to pay a Security Deposit equal to 2 installments of the base rent.
  2. Guarantor Waiver Program (GWP): If you are a full-time student and do not have a qualifying guarantor, you may opt to use our GWP. You will need to send proof of Full-Time Enrollment and sign a Guarantor Waiver Program Addendum. GWP Applicants are required to pay an additional monthly fee of $118 and pay a $100 Security Deposit.
  3. International (I20): If you are an International Student who does not have a qualifying guarantor, you may apply with your I20. International Applicants are required to pay a Security Deposit equal to 2 installments of base rent and send proof of their I20.

Note that all Security Deposits are refundable, pending your move-out inspection and any damages to your apartment.

Rental Criteria

While there is no set deadline, our availability and rates are first come-first served. The only way to secure a spot at The Standard is by completing the Application & Lease in full. We recommend signing as soon as possible and are happy to help guide you through this process & answer any questions you may have.

The Standard is located at 4321 Hartwick Road, within walking distance to UMD’s campus, local grocery stores, restaurants, bars, and more!

When you apply, there is an option to list your preferred roommates. Once getting approved, to confirm you will be living with your preferred roommates, each individual resident will register for Room Sync, our Roommate Matching Program. From there, you can “sync up” on the app, which is what notifies our office that you want to live together!

We lease individually, by the bed, so you can sign your individual Housing Contract and lock in your spot as soon as you’re ready, regardless of your roommates! We cannot, however, hold spots for preferred roommates or anyone since we lease first come-first serve. To ensure you and any friends can live together, we recommend signing at the same time if possible.

We offer fully virtual leasing for your convenience so you are not required to come in person! To get started, you’ll first hit the “Apply Now” button on our website! From there, you’ll fill out all 7 steps of your non-binding application, submit (and pay any fees if applicable), and once your lease is generated, to officially secure your spot, you will initial and sign all documents. Depending on how your application type/how you’re qualifying, there may be additional steps required prior to screening and lease approval. Please contact our office with any questions to ensure your account gets screened and approved asap!

At The Standard, we are excited to offer the newest, most upgraded, and best possible experience to our residents in our brand-new community. For information on current Leasing Specials, please Text, Call, or WhatsApp us at 240-332-1694.

This year’s Housing Contract runs from August 20th, 2023-July 31st, 2024. Due to the number of residents we have at The Standard, we will be scheduling move-in time slots over the course of August 19th-August 21st. More information regarding your specific time slot will be sent closer to your lease start date. If you cannot move-in on your lease start date, please contact our office with when you do plan on moving in so we can prepare for your arrival! Rent, regardless of the day you move-in, will be due no later than August 4th.
