University of Maryland Stamp Student Union North Entrance Renovation
University of Maryland Stamp Student Union North Entrance Renovation | College Park, Maryland
The University of Maryland (UMD) Student Activity Center, also known as the Adele H. Stamp Student Union, is one of the densest pedestrian areas on campus, with more than one million students, faculty, staff and visitors passing through its doors on an annual basis.
As part of an ongoing campus beautification initiative, UMD hired DPR to renovate the north entrance to make it more aesthetically pleasing for pedestrians coming from the nearby sports fields and residence halls.
The north entrance renovation features both interior and exterior work, including a new lobby, and façade and vestibule replacement. To replace the existing walkway and bike racks, there is a new courtyard and sitting area for students that features new landscaping and Terrapin-themed decorative rock structures.
Thanks to the efforts of the DPR team, the project met its goal to be opened in time for UMD's first Big Ten football game of the season.
