COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
UMBC campuses are closed, but courses are now online and employees are working remotely.

Campus Visits and Events

In response to COVID-19 and guidance from the state and national leadership, UMBC’s physical campus is currently closed (see the latest information on the university’s response) and all in-person events, tours, and visits are cancelled for the remainder of the semester.

While the physical campus has closed, our teams are still here to support you in your college search and application process. We know how important it is for you to get to know our campus and our community, and we’ve got ways to help you do that, from videos and photos to online presentations from our admissions team.
