Learning on the cheap

I have a summer without a full-time job lined up, live near a world-class college campus, and wouldn't mind sitting in on classes. I don't have enough money to actually enroll for non-credit, so I was wondering: what's the general policy is on sitting in on large lecture classes?

I have vague plans to use this summer to read and study stuff that I haven't had time to do as a grad student, in addition to working a few part-time jobs, and volunteering to pad out my CV, gain experience and make contacts.
I would like to take classes at the university (Maryland, College Park, in case that matters), but don't have enough money to pay for anything. What's the best way to sit in on classes?
My general interests would be literary theory, film, social theory, statistics, logic, and some sciences.
Also: I'm aware that classes are often offered for free through YouTube and university websites, but that kind of thing doesn't work for me, so there's no need to suggest it.
