COVID-19 Response and Planning
The University of Baltimore will continue to meet the many challenges of the pandemic with one principle in mind: In order to deliver and receive a quality education, first and foremost our community must be healthy and safe.
As of the start of the fall semester, all members of the UBalt community who have complied with the University System of Maryland's vaccine mandate were welcomed back to the campus, via in-person, online, or hybrid class settings. Now, we are tracking vaccine compliance and case rates for your perusal on our COVID-19 dashboard.
Important information for the spring semester is now available.
Community members must show proof of vaccination prior to arrival on campus, or receive administrative approval for a medical or religious exemption. For more information, visit the Vaccine Requirements page.
With the arrival of the highly contagious Omicron variant, the University is taking steps to ensure that our community's health and safety can continue undiminished.
UBalt offices are open. Most offices are operating remotely, and you can call or email to schedule an appointment. In addition, some offices have on-campus hours as noted below:
Office of the Bursar
Standard hours for the Office of the Bursar are Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. During these hours, Bursar employees are available by phone, video call, and email (i.e., virtually). The Bursar's office also is operating in-person/on-campus on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This on-campus service enables students who choose not to pay their UBalt charges online to pay by phone or in-person during these days and hours. Students who use self-service access to view and pay their bills online can do so at any time via MyUBalt, or they can pay by mail. Visit this page for further details.
The Hive Campus Store
The Hive, the UBalt campus store is located on the ground floor of the Student Center adjacent to the southwest corner of Maryland and Mt. Royal avenues for course packets, computers, school supplies, backpacks and snacks. The physical store is open Monday through Thursday, noon until 5 p.m.; on Fridays, the hours are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the store operates virtually as well. Textbooks are available only online, and students can use textbook credit (financial aid) or pay directly online. Books ordered online can be shipped to students.
Community members who need a Bee Card may make a request by email. Visit this page to find out how.
UBalt is continuing to conduct a phased return to campus so that we can meet our goal of community health and safety—and to do so in a sustainable way. Student services are offered in a combination of on-campus and online formats. Extra- and co-curricular activities are taking place, with public health recommendations guiding how they are conducted. As the University returns to campus, our community should keep in mind that, compared to last fall, spring 2022 will look different as some areas return to campus earlier or at a higher percentage than others. (The J.D. program, for example, returned to all on-campus courses this fall per its accreditation needs). Information posted on the UBalt website will be updated regularly.
The Office of Admission is operating remotely. You can connect with a counselor by email, phone and virtual appointments. To learn more about becoming a UBalt student, register for an upcoming admission event today!
