As the 10th anniversary of 9/11 approaches, the campus is noting the significance of this time in several ways. Our community is remembering the victims and the far-reaching impact of the attacks with a number of campus events designed to support reflection, service, and healing.

For those who may need support, counselors will be available in the Counseling Center from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Monday to talk with people about feelings related to 9/11.

The campus remains vigilant about suspicious activities and threats. The UMBC Police are regularly in contact with federal agencies and receive daily briefings from Maryland public safety officials regarding terrorist activities and threats. Currently, there are no credible threats against any Maryland colleges and universities.

Our campus has an emergency preparedness plan in place, and we encourage you to think about your own personal plans as well. A first step is to make sure that you are signed up to receive University text alerts on a mobile device. To register, please log on to your myUMBC ( account and click the “alerts” tab at the top.
