Greater College Park is the result of cooperative work between the city, Prince George’s County, state, private developers and the university. This effort links dynamic academic buildings, a public-private research hub and vibrant downtown community. The progress is the realization of the University District Vision, a collaborative effort spearheaded by the College Park City-University Partnership that also features sustainability, transportation, schools and safety. Greater College Park provides new amenities to the area including The Hotel at the University of Maryland, academic buildings and restaurants.


Greater College Park includes the Discovery District—an epicenter of academic, research and economic achievement and will strengthen existing research partnerships, retain a pipeline of talent locally and offer more experiences for residents, faculty, staff and students.


“Together, we are building a community here,” says UMD President Wallace Loh. “If we are to recruit and retain the world’s best faculty and staff, we need housing options, stores and restaurants, green spaces. And we need to intrinsically tie together our academics and research with our surrounding communities.”
