The Nation's Premiere Athletic Performance Center


Office of Principal Gifts // supportcole@umd.edu

The Terrapin Performance Center will promote physical training at the highest level for Maryland’s varsity athletes as well as enhanced fitness and recreational opportunities for the university’s many intramural and club athletes.

An INDOOR, REGULATION-SIZE FOOTBALL FIELD will allow year-round all-weather practice, keeping our teams competition-ready. Two adjacent outdoor fields will bring football operations in close proximity to Maryland Stadium, freeing space for athletics and recreation across campus.

The Terrapin Performance Center will bring together nutritionists, academic mentors and career advisers in a holistic approach to student success. Student athletes will work toward peak performance aided by cutting-edge STRENGTH, CONDITIONING AND HYDROTHERAPY facilities and advanced PHYSICAL ASSESSMENT AND DIAGNOSTIC TECHNOLOGY.

While preserving Cole’s well-loved entrance along Campus Drive, the renovated building will present a pedestrian-friendly façade facing Maryland Stadium. In its landmark place at the heart of campus, adjacent to the planned Purple Line light-rail station, it will serve as the focal point of Maryland pride.
