General Policy

It is the general policy of the University of Maryland, Baltimore that the campus is always open for business and employees are always expected to report to work.

In the event of inclement weather, a decision regarding the status of the University will be made by the president or his designee. No other University official has the authority to determine the status of the campus.

Once a decision has been made, a UMB Alert will be sent with information about the change in campus operations.
