Prince Frederick Hall, an honors college and student resident facility, is part of the new southwest gateway entrance for the University of Maryland. The student housing provides 462 beds in a combination of singles, doubles and four-person semi-suites with bathrooms. Approximately half of the residents are housed in traditional double rooms, while nearly 40% are housed in four-person semi-suites. A small number of single and double rooms with private baths are available on each floor. Common area bathrooms and gender-neutral bathrooms are provided on each floor. The building includes six study lounges and six social lounges. The entrance features an open lobby with access from both sides of the building as well as the first and ground floors.
The Honor College includes 14,000-sf of classroom space for the University’s Advanced Cybersecurity Experience for Students (ACES) learning program, which is a collaboration with Northrop Grumman. The ACES program is one of seven Honors living/learning communities at UMD. A large 140-seat multipurpose room and a 75-seat seminar room on the first floor, and two smaller seminar rooms on the ground floor, support the hall’s living/learning mission, as well as building events.
