This public research university is the town's largest employer and nearly half of the city's population is comprised of UMCP students. Due to the close proximity to Washington, D.C., UMCP has strong research partnerships with the federal government, providing students great opportunities with agencies such as NASA and the Department of Homeland Security. Overall, with its over 35,000 students per semester and 1,250-acre campus in the heart of the city, UMCP has largely become synonymous with the city of College Park.

Calvert Hills Histori

Part of College Park is located within the well-known Calvert Hills Historic District. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 2002, this district is mostly comprised of middle class single-family homes that were developed in the early 20th century by the Calvert Family. The land was originally rural property that belonged to the of the Rossborough Farm and Riversdale Plantation, each of which the family owned. As Washington, D.C. grew, however, so did the need residential development. So from the 1890s through the 1940s, Calvert Hills filled in with the Colonial Revival-style houses that still stand today.
