Campus information

Allegany College of Maryland had modest beginnings in the former Carver School on Frederick Street, where the first students were enrolled in September 1961. Today, the College has a "modern and spacious" campus in suburban Cumberland, Maryland.

The 316-acre campus includes 15 buildings, which provide modern facilities for both credit and non-credit students. Facilities and equipment are consistent with and designed to maintain the high academic standards of the College. In addition to the Library, Humanities, and Science buildings, there is a College Center which houses the student lounge, dining facilities, a 400-seat theatre, Admissions and Registration, Financial Aid, Student and Legal Affairs, Institutional Research, and the Business Office. The campus also includes a Physical Education Building, which houses a large gymnasium and indoor swimming pool. The Technologies building houses instructional and laboratory facilities for several of the career technology programs in addition to the Computer Center and the Distance Learning and Media Center. The Continuing Education building houses classrooms and meeting rooms for conferences, workshops, and seminars. In addition, the College's Information Center is located in this building. All of the College's credit and non-credit health programs are centrally located in the Allied Health building. The Automotive Technology building houses the Automotive Technology program. Behind the Automotive building are the services building, the welding lab building, and a storage facility. The Advancement/College Store houses marketing, public relations, the advancement office, and bookstore. 

We believe that the college is more than time spent in the classroom - it's about building relationships and finding your life's path. For many of us, the friends we make in college remain in our lives long after graduation. At Allegany College of Maryland, we invite you to gain the full college experience by living on our Cumberland campus at Willowbrook Woods in one of our five garden style residential complexes.


As one of the few community colleges that offer residential housing, we take pride in our safe, modern student housing. With the ability to house 236 students, we offer you the chance to check out group activities at our clubhouse, grab a bite to eat at our campus café, or make dinner with your roommates in the kitchen of your four bedroom, two bathroom apartment. At Willowbrook Woods, security is our top concern. Our security department provides 24/7 access control and patrol functions to ensure residents' safety.
