The Grid

Picture of HSHSL LibraryUniversity of Maryland Ventures and the University of Maryland Graduate School worked in partnership to create the Grid, an innovation space where students connect to bring innovative health and social impact ideas to life through education, entrepreneurial resources, and programming.

The Grid is housed in the HS/HSL, which provides a central convening destination for students, faculty, staff, and the community. Workshops and services in-person, virtual, and hybrid. 

Why the HS/HSL?  Teamwork makes the dream work! The Grid’s workshops and programs for aspiring student entrepreneurs complement the HS/HSL’s Innovation Space and the plans for the Center for Data and Bioinformation Services (CDABS). In addition, this now three-way partnership among the Graduate School, UM Ventures, and the HS/HSL will provide students, faculty, staff, and community members with a one-stop-shop for anything related to entrepreneurial and innovation education.

Hours and Closures

The Grid is located on the third floor of the Health Sciences and Human Services Library (HS/HSL) at 601 W. Lombard St. and is open when the library is open from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., Monday through Friday (unless otherwise noted). See Library hours for more details
