Social Media University Hashtags

The following hashtags are used by the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) and/or associated schools, departments, and programs. If you would like to submit a new hashtag to this list, please contact

A hashtag is a keyword or phrase preceded by a hash or pound sign (#) used on social media to identify messages on a specific topic. When you add hashtags to your posts, you’re speaking the language of social media, and other users will respond in kind. Hashtags help to increase user engagement by making your content easier to find. Most social media sites use hashtags as a grouping function, enabling users to search for a topic by hashtag, which will return a site-wide list of posts that use that hashtag.

Hashtags help facilitate the discovery of new content and make it easier to categorize or group content (if you create a hashtag for a University event, for example, you can see all tweets related to that event by searching that particular hashtag).
