Policing and Public Safety at The University of Baltimore

Policing on the campus of The University of Baltimore (UBalt) is managed by the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB). UBalt maintains responsibility for campus security performed by unarmed, civilian security personnel known as the UBalt Safety and Security team. Uniformed officers from UMB—sworn, armed, and professionally trained and certified—are assigned to patrol the UBalt campus. At the same time, our Safety and Security staff provides building access and control, including office lockouts, welcome desk staffing, interior/exterior patrols, etc. UMB police and UBalt security staff are in regular and constant contact.

In the event of any emergency requiring police, fire or medical personnel on the UBalt campus, dial 911. You have two options for calling 911 when you are on campus: Dial 9-1-1 from any cellular device, or from your computer via Microsoft Teams. Your call will be routed simultaneously to both Baltimore's 911 operations and the UMB police. A dispatcher will respond and UMB officers, stationed at UBalt, will be on scene immediately.

Call 410-837-4444 for non-emergency service requests on the UBalt campus. You will reach the UBalt Safety and Security department. A UBalt Safety and Security team member will respond to your call and provide fast and appropriate assistance.

Day or night, through the week and the weekend, UMB officers assigned to the UBalt campus are patrolling our streets, buildings and gathering places. If you need help and an officer or security team member is nearby, ask for their help. If no uniformed officer or security staff member is nearby, call one of the numbers above, depending on the nature of your issue.

Your safety and security are the top priority for The University of Baltimore. Let's work together to keep the campus a safe and welcoming environment for our community.
