Discovery District

The Discovery District is the epicenter of academic, research and economic achievement and strengthens existing research partnerships, retains a pipeline of talent locally and offers more experiences for residents, faculty, staff and students.


Featuring attractions like The Hotel at the University of Maryland and a unique food, arts and entertainment experience envisioned by Scott Plank of WarHorse Cities, the Discovery District is a hub of activity.


The Discovery District encompasses more than 150 acres that stretch from Baltimore Avenue to the research-rich and metro accessible community along River Road.

“In the Discovery District, our faculty, students, and businesses will work to turn knowledge into jobs. The District’s facilities and amenities will quicken the pulse of research, innovation, and learning, creating economic and social benefits for Maryland and beyond.”
