Bowie State is in the midst of one of the nation's most exciting metropolitan areas, within easy reach of Washington, DC, and Baltimore. At the same time, it boasts a serene campus on a 300-acre suburban wooded tract. With seven residence halls, the University is a hub of 24/7 undergraduate life, yet it also offers convenient evening classes and online courses to serve employed professionals seeking to move ahead in their careers.
The University is located in Bowie, MD, just east of Washington, DC, and south of Baltimore, MD. The closest airport is Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. The campus has a train stop on the Maryland Commuter Rail (MARC) Penn Line that runs between Baltimore's Penn Station and Washington's Union Station. Bowie State also is a stop on three Metrobus lines operated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority: B21, B22, and B27. These bus lines connect the University with the New Carrollton station of the Washington, DC, Metro subway system.
Living in one of the residence halls at Bowie State University is an important component of a student's total learning and personal growth experience. It provides a unique opportunity for students to participate in campus life to the fullest extent possible because of its proximity to cultural, intellectual, and social events. The idea of residence hall living is to create and maintain an environment that is conducive to the total development of each member of the community. The Residence Life staff, composed of resident assistants and senior staff, is strongly committed to this ideal.
On-campus living provides a variety of challenges and opportunities for each resident student. Although this unique living environment offers a large degree of freedom, it imposes an obligation on the resident student to use this freedom wisely. In addition to assuming responsibility of his/her own behavior, every resident must respect the needs and concerns of others.
