Student Center Policies

    Closings and Delays

    If the University opens late, closes early, or is closed for the day, the Student Center’s hours of operation and programs will follow the adjusted University schedule.

  • Accidents and Insurance

    University Responsibility

    The Student Center, the Division for Student Affairs and the University of Baltimore are not responsible for injuries incurred at University-organized activities, programs or events. The Student Center will provide assistance in contacting University of Baltimore Police Department, who will then provide first aid as needed and will solicit transportation to a hospital if necessary.

    Participant Responsibility

    Participants should know and be able to meet the physical demands of any activity in which they are to engage. Each activity has a certain degree of risk, some more than others. Please note that participants of an event or program may be required to sign a liability waiver prior to participation.

    If medical assistance is necessary, the medical expenses beyond those covered by the participant’s insurance are the responsibility of the participant. It is also the responsibility of the participant to report any accident or incidents to the Student Center Operations Office within three business days following a program or event.

    The Student Center strongly recommends all students not covered by health and accident insurance purchase student insurance.
