We have always been able to give you extremely low rates to cover the expense of purchasing and maintaining the equipment you need. Our long-term planning process maintains capital equipment and our plant fund, both essential to a strong working system. We know you appreciate our very qualified professional staff, and our easy-to-use billing website.

This year, we’re adjusting our rates to meet our projected expenses and to follow federal regulations. We’ll still be more than competitive with other top-ranked and local institutions. We are simplifying our billing system to eliminate unnecessary categories of billing. All our UMD users are now on an equal footing, with no difference between formal members and non-members. As mandated by law, federal users will have the lowest rates available – and UMD users will be charged the same, minus the 52% university overhead. These changes will go in effect in the first billing cycle of the next academic semester, January 16, 2016.

Please see our FAQ’s at https://www.nanocenter.umd.edu/facilities/rates for more information. Please contact John Cumings, interim NanoCenter director, at jcumings@umd.edu ; or Alice Mobaidin, financial administrator, at mobaidin@umd.edu .
