About Baltimore

Baltimore‌The 32-acre University of Maryland, Baltimore campus provides advanced research facilities and laboratories, including the University of Maryland Biotechnology Park, the UMB Biopark and the Health Science Facility II. Medical students have the opportunity to get hands-on experience at both the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) and the Baltimore VA Medical Center.

We are located in an historic section of Baltimore, just two blocks from the Hippodrome Theater, featuring the national touring companies of popular Broadway shows, and five blocks from the bustling Inner Harbor, a highly innovative district for both entertainment and commerce. We're also only two blocks from Camden Yards, the home of the Baltimore Orioles, and a few blocks further from M&T Stadium, the home of the Baltimore Ravens. (See an interactive campus map.)

Nearby, the Chesapeake Bay and Eastern Shore offer opportunities for summer activities. The city is within an hour's drive of the Appalachian Mountains, where summer hiking and winter skiing are enjoyed. Washington, D.C., only 40 miles away, offers additional academic, cultural and recreational activities, and can be easy reached by the MARC train just blocks away from campus. Baltimore is situated in one of the finest areas in the country as far as the fostering of mergers between industry, science and medicine, and is quickly leading the way in biological discovery and innovation.

There's so much to do here in Baltimore that it takes an entire website to show all that "Charm City" has to offer. Check it out at!
