Weather-Related Information

The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB), including the University of Maryland School of Nursing, will open on time and all classes and clinicals will be held. Faculty, staff, and students at the Universities at Shady Grove (USG) should follow USG protocol. If you are scheduled to do a face-to-face class in Baltimore on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday and are unable to get out of your neighborhood due to the lack of snow removal, please notify your department chair via email so that alternative plans can be made. Please also copy the appropriate academic dean. 


It is the general policy of UMB that the University is always open for business and we are expected to report to work. 

When the president makes the decision to close the University and/or the dean of UMSON makes the decision to cancel UMSON classes and/or exams, any up-to-date information can be accessed by visiting this Web page.

Although radio and television stations are notified regarding school closings, please confirm by calling the 410-706-8622 for UMB closings.
