Where you will live
Selected Urban Teacher Center (UTC) residents start the program in mid-June in Baltimore City. Both the Washington, DC and Baltimore Cohorts live together at Coppin State University in Baltimore for the first six weeks of summer training. Residents receive free room and board for those six weeks. After the first six weeks of the program, residents are responsible for finding their own permanent housing in DC or Baltimore. UTC staff facilitates opportunities for residents to find roommates and makes housing recommendations.
