Living In and Around Maryland
Maryland is an outstanding health care community. Whether you?re a student at our Baltimore or Shady Grove campus, you will be in the center of top hospitals and health care institutions including the University of Maryland Medical Center, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Montgomery County General, the National Institutes of Health, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Downtown Baltimore is an exciting place to live and work, offering all the amenities of a large city and the charm of a small town. There is lively nightlife and eclectic dining, shopping, a symphony orchestra, and theaters that host Broadway plays. The Baltimore campus is within walking distance to attractions such as Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles, M&T Bank Stadium, home of the Baltimore Ravens, and the Inner Harbor.
The Universities at Shady Grove in Rockville, Md., forges a link between our scientific and clinical faculty and the rich resources of the I-270 biotechnology corridor and federal facilities. In addition to close proximity to major federal agencies, Rockville is a vibrant community with easy access to the Metro and the attractions of Washington, D.C. including historical monuments and museums.
Just a few hours away from both campuses, students can enjoy the water sports offered by the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean. The nearby mountains of Western Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania provide opportunities for camping, hiking, and winter sports.
