Spring Opening Information

Updated January 20, 2021 

The University continues to remain focused on our community’s health and safety, and maintains this priority in decision-making. 

  • The nation continues to experience higher and higher one-day totals in positive cases. 
  • Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has urged Marylanders to stay vigilant in our collective actions to prevent the spread of the virus. 
  • Leaders in Prince George’s County, where our campus is located, have issued and maintain strict guidance and oversight. 


What will be open?

To see what’s open through the second week of February, view the SPRING OPENING operating schedule.

Will dining halls be carryout only when they open for Spring Semester?

Yes, due to the COVID-19 crisis and the need to keep our community as safe as possible, we must return to the carryout only style of service offered at the start of the fall semester. We will offer dine-in service when the situation allows and the University approves. 

When is the UMD Campus Pantry open?

The Maryland Campus Pantry will open with the Spring Semester.
The first Friday distribution hours for 2021 start at noon on January 29, 2021.
If you have an urgent need at other times, we have pre-packed bags of non-perishable groceries available.
This service will be in effect January 4 – January 28, 8:30 am to 4:00 pm.
