This is a somewhat obscure question, but through a bit of Googling and a bit of background work, I've been unable to find an answer. I'm a UMD student, and have been trying to ascertain whether or not the shots of the University of Maryland in the X files are real, or shot somewhere in California.
There are never action shots, simply lead characters walking into buildings, overhead shots of the campus, etc... It looks like the shots might be real (given that nothing too amazing happens), but as it was the early 90s, the landscaping has changed slightly (and it's a fairly standard east coast school architecture without an amazing amount of distinctive features).
Is X Files shot on location at UMD's campus?
