Renting in College Park

Rent Stabilization

The College Park City Council voted on June 17, 2014 to sunset the Rent Stabilization law effective September 1, 2014. There will be no further administration or enforcement of rent stabilization. The City Council is actively engaged with stakeholders, including City residents, University of Maryland administrators and students, police agencies and rental property owners, through the Neighborhood Quality of Life Committee, to achieve the goals and resolve the concerns rent stabilization was intended to address.

Specifically, the Neighborhood Quality of Life Committee is charged with developing strategies to:


  • reduce issues that negatively impact quality of Life for College Park residents,
  • increase rates of home ownership,
  • build positive relations between different groups in the community, and
  • expand options for affordable housing.
