Without further ado, here are the best college towns in Maryland for 2022.

To crunch our data on Maryland's best college towns, we had to first decide which qualities (or rankings) make sense to use in the data, and then crunch the numbers for our rankings.
First off, we firmly decided that only cities with a 4 year college should make the cut -- so there has to be at least one college granting bachelors degrees in town.
You might be surprised to hear that there are only 11 places in Maryland with an institution of higher learning with that criteria.
We ranked each city across each of the criteria, with one being the best.
We rolled up the individual scores into the category and ranked them again based on the category.
Finally, we took the average rank across each category, with the city posting the lowest overall score being crowned the winner of the title "Best College Town In Maryland For 2022".
And it looks like Towson placed Summa Cum Laude.
If you're looking for the best college towns in Maryland, you came to the right place.
