Center for Sustainability in the Built Environment (City@UMD)


The Center for Sustainability in the Built Environment (City@UMD) was established with funding from the University of Maryland Provost’s Office in 2012. The Center’s mission is to revolutionize the physical infrastructure systems in cities. City@UMD’s education, research, and technology transfer projects explore properties emerging from the sub-scale processes of cities’ infrastructure.

City@UMD currently has research activities in support of their mission funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and DARPA. At UMD, their work informs and serves campus through work with Facility Management, the Sustainability Council, and the President’s Energy Task Force.
