Inclement Weather

It is the policy of the University of Maryland Baltimore to conduct business as usual on every scheduled day.  Due to inclement weather, however, the Office of the President may decide it is necessary to close the campus.  

If so, that decision usually is made by 6:00 a.m. and can be accessed by calling 410-706-8622.  The law school also makes this same information available on our own phone line 410-706-7214 by 6:30 a.m.  The law school has authority to make separate decisions regarding late afternoon and evening classes.  We try to make those decisions and provide notice to faculty, students and staff no later than 3:00 p.m.
Students, faculty and staff members should tune in to WBAL 1090 AM in Baltimore or WTOP 103.5 FM radio in Washington, D.C. for the announcement of University decisions regarding classes during inclement weather. Call 410-706-UMAB (8622) for the latest, most reliable, information on campus closings.

When the law school is open, individual students and faculty may have to make their own decisions regarding the safety of traveling to and from school.  Notice of individual course cancellations will be posted on our website (, Blackboard and, weather permitting, on the main entrance plasma screen.
