Campus Life

One of the most important criteria you can use when selecting a college is a simple gut reaction. Look around...

Can you see yourself here?

With a lovely 52-acre campus in Laurel, you can enjoy all the perks of a small suburban college — conveniently located halfway between two exciting cities: Baltimore and Washington DC. At Capitol, you become part of a tight-knit community. You’ll be surrounded by people who share your intelligence, curiosity and passion.


Students live in apartments from their first day on campus, which means you don't have to wait until you're an upperclassman to enjoy freedom from stuffy small traditional college rooms.

Housing Eligibility

All registered, full-time students are eligible to live in the residence facilities. Housing is single-sex and apartments accessible for people with disabilities are available. Housing assignments are on a first come first serve basis, with preference given to those who submit a housing application and have a deposit on file by May 1st.


Students at Capitol are not required to buy pricey meal plans. Instead, you'll have the choice of cooking your own meals in your apartment or having a hot meal made to order in the campus deli.

The Student Success Center

The mission of the Student Success Center at Capitol Technology University is to assist students in all programs of study, enhance their academic knowledge through interdependent learning. Students receive assistance from their peers in a fun environment, fostering personal development within a community of scholars.

You don't have to go it alone if you want good grades. The Student Success Center offers students more than one way to succeed. The Student Success Center targets notoriously difficult subjects and lends you a hand in making the grade.
