Here’s what some of the students who shared our home had to say.
Tyler Steff 2018: “As a UMD senior Illustration student who spent my last year of college at this home, I can happily say that this living arrangement majorly contributed to my health and success. After three years on campus I became increasingly sick of the cons of dorm life (loud noise, lack of privacy, vandalism, expense, etc...)
"I originally moved to this house to save money when compared to the price of room and board, but quickly discovered that I had found a MUCH better living situation. With basically full access to the lovely home I honestly felt like I was living with friends, as well as fellow artists; (given that the husband is a writer and the wife is an illustrator and fine artist!) But like any good friendly relationship, I found there to be a flawless balance of privacy and only positive interactions.
"The house is a short 10-15-minute commute by car through lovely wooded roads and the neighborhood is the nicest and safest I’ve probably ever been in! Plenty of hiking trails right down the road and an absolutely beautiful farming community to bike through as well. With fully furnished rooms (fridge and microwave included) I found moving in and out to be much easier.
"Great people, beautiful area, awesome lifestyle, easy price. I really think this is the best off-campus living arrangement for a long ways. Take a friend too if you can, there is two rooms and I found living with someone I knew helped me acclimated; not at all to say it wasn’t a welcoming change.
"This living arrangement made for the best year of college I had, and I really wish to see that continue for others.”
Zach Kent 2017: “Living with Ed and Mary was a treat! They are two wonderfully hospitable people. Living there is a wonderful and cost effective alternative to the dorms or other off campus selections as it gave you the freedom of living away from home with the safety and security of living in a house, heck Mary and Ed have even offered dinner on many occasions! Mary and Ed let you do your own thing but if you ever need someone to talk to they are always there! All in all it was a wonderful experience that I cherish. I would not hesitate to do again and recommend to others.
Myke Sarfo 2016: “29 Medeiros Ln. is the best place I ever lived while at UMD. I moved in somewhere around May and lived there for about a year. Ed, the Man, and Mary welcomed me like I’m their own son and I felt at home the first time I moved in. The house is very clean, the rooms are very spacious and well cleaned – also a nice bathroom. Ed always makes sure if you are all set and if you need something he’s always there to help. Such a kind and loving man he is. 29 Medeiros will always be my home! (Love you Ed & Mary)”
