Visiting Campus

As we work to fully re-open our physical campus for Fall 2021, we are working in a rapidly changing environment. As you plan to return to or visit campus, please consider these guidelines. You are also expected to comply with safe on-campus behavior. Also, given that vaccines will be required for all students, faculty, and staff who are on a Maryland campus, please learn more about reporting your vaccination.

Visiting campus regularly to teach, work, or study

Students enrolled in in-person or hybrid summer courses receive detailed instructions on the health and safety requirements they need to fulfill to maintain their campus access. More information is available here.

All Faculty and Staff are now approved to be on campus and have received information on their health and safety requirements, which depend on their vaccination status. Please check your COVID Compliance Card in your myUMBC profile.

Faculty, Staff, and Students Conducting Research should review this guidance.

Student workers should work with their supervisors to gain approval to be on campus.

One-Time Visitors 

One-time visitors to our campus who will attend in-person events or activities must comply with the following safety requirements:

  1. You must have a UMBC faculty or staff sponsor who will be responsible for seeking access approval, coordinating your visit, and accompanying you while on campus. Your sponsor must limit your access to campus to the location of your in-person event.
  2. Inform your sponsor if your visit falls within 10 days of any positive test and do not come to campus or if you have symptoms.
  3. Face coverings or masks are required to be worn in buildings. Masks are not required outdoors unless you are participating in an activity or event that requires them.

Community members wishing to hold an event on campus should reach out to Event and Conference Services to understand space limitations and safety requirements.

If you have questions regarding one-time visits please contact Deputy Chief of Police, Bruce Perry at (443) 677-2195, or Lieutenant Derrick Johns at (410) 207-0850.
