Emergency, Disaster & Weather News


During a campus emergency or inclement weather, up-to-date information is available online at www.umaryland.edu/alerts or by calling 410-706-8622.

Inclement Weather

It is the policy of the University of Maryland to conduct business as usual on every scheduled day. Due to inclement weather, however, the Office of the President may decide it is necessary to close the campus. If so, that decision usually is made by 6:00 a.m. and can be accessed by calling 410-706-UMAB (8622).

The SMC Campus Center has authority to make separate decisions regarding building hours. When making an independent decision, we try to make the decision and provide notice to staff and cliental no later than:

  • 5 a.m. for a late opening or closing Monday – Friday 
  • 3 p.m. for an early closing Monday – Friday
  • 6 a.m. for late opening or closing Saturday & Sunday
