While more established student housing co-ops tend to own their property, we are a very young organization, and our houses are rented from local landlords while we build capital to eventually purchase our own house. Our houses are located in two neighborhoods: Calvert Hills and Berwyn Heights.
From here, Downtown College Park is a ten-minute walk away, as is the College Park station on the Washington DC Metro Green Line. The #104 College Park Metro is a free shuttle bus that runs frequently throughout the day from the east side of the station to Regents Drive on the UMD campus, and downtown DC is about 25 minutes away by train.
This is roughly a mile from Calvert Hills, and a 5-to-10-minute walk from shops on Route 1 plus a 10-to-15-minute walk to the northeast part of campus - home to the engineering and computer science buildings. Free Shuttle-UM buses (#114 University View, #117 Blue, and #132 The Varsity) run throughout the day from the neighborhood to various parts of campus.
