College Park & D.C.You’ll love our location, nestled in the D.C. suburb of College Park.
It offers a great variety of shops and restaurants, featuring dishes that span the globe. A popular hiker-biker trail runs right through campus, and past Lake Artemesia, a great picnicking spot. Neighboring communities offer shopping malls, movie theaters and just about every other amenity you can imagine.
Just a Metro ride away, you can catch all the sights, culture and nightlife of Washington, D.C. You’re also only a half-hour from Baltimore and Annapolis, where you can stroll along the harbor and find places to try our famous Maryland blue crabs. Take the MARC train to Oriole Park at Camden Yards, or the Baltimore Ravens football stadium. Check out mega-concerts at the Verizon Center, home to the Capitals and Wizards, jazz music at the intimate Blues Alley in Georgetown or stand-up comedians at the D.C. Improv.
UMD offers the best of both worlds with the college town feel of College Park while right next door to our nation’s capital.
