WeWork’s first location on a college campus opened this year at the University of Maryland, with adaptations made to make the popular coworking brand a good fit for students.
The coworking giant created a flagship of a model that targets graduate and student-led startups, branches of companies recruiting from the UMD, and former WeWork users who live near College Park. The location is at 7761 Diamondback Drive.
The facility at UMD is 18,000 sq. ft. and features private offices and hot desks in a slightly smaller format than most of their DC region location. This location does not offer alcohol due to the college campus and has instead set up an ongoing kombucha keg.
