Plan a visit to the University of Maryland and get to know this vast campus. Because the school offers so much, you can choose from a variety of tours, tailored to different interests. Once you've seen all you need, head to Baltimore or Washington, D.C., for some city sightseeing.
The institution lies on 1,339 acres just north of Washington, D.C. Three major airports serve the area: Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI), Washington National Airport (DCA), and Dulles International Airport (IAD). You can travel to the campus from DCA and IAD via metro. From BWI, a van leaves for College Park frequently.
Registration for on-campus visits opens one to two months before each event. Once you register, you will receive a confirmation email. You can choose from a variety of tour options provided by the institution.
You have a few options for turning your campus visit into a sightseeing trip. About 45 minutes away by car is Baltimore, where you can visit the Maryland Historical Society, eat local steamed crabs, and tour the harbor area. You can also head to Washington, D.C., a half-hour drive away, and visit the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Lincoln Memorial, the National Mall, and so much more.
