Purpose

Group picture of UMBC Students

As the semester begins, we encourage you to take time to meet new people, ask questions, and get the information and support that you need to start strong. The first week of classes for each semester is also known as Welcome Week. There are a variety of activities and events to help you meet new people, understand your opportunities within the UMBC community, and have fun.

If you have any questions, please email welcomeweek@umbc.edu and we will work to get you the information you need or connect you with a current student. Please visit the events page in early January and early August to view a full list of the events for the week.
