Welcome to STAMP:
Access and Mask Restrictions Lifted for the Summer
In alignment with the University of Maryland lifting COVID-19 related restrictions on May 31, STAMP has lifted access, capacity and mask restrictions in our building. As a result, visitors will see several changes throughout the STAMP and around the UMD campus in the days and weeks ahead.
In the STAMP, visitors will notice some of the following changes:
- Given the latest public health guidance that includes the lifting of restrictions on physical distancing and mask wearing (for vaccinated individuals), the 4Maryland signage materials are no longer accurate and campus leadership has determined that all 4Maryland signage should be removed as soon as practical. Signage such as floor decals for physical distancing, one way arrows, elevator signs and temporary room capacity signs will be removed.
- Employees, students and guests in UMD facilities will no longer be required to wear face masks inside or outside of the STAMP.
- Furniture will be returned to the food court, lounge spaces and other common areas gradually over the coming weeks as we plan for rearranged seating areas to make our guests as comfortable as possible while transitioning back to a sense of normalcy.
STAMP continues to provide a safe space for the community with safety and cleaning/disinfecting protocols guided by the CDC and state/county recommendations.

STAMP AAPI Cross-Racial Solidarity Statement
At the one-year mark of the global pandemic and the witnessing of an historic reckoning of systemic racism, we at the Adele H. Stamp Student Union — Center for Campus Life (STAMP) are reminded of the important, collective work we still must do to support and live the mission to which we are committed: "To provide a safe and inviting campus center where all UMD students, alumni, faculty, staff, and community members cultivate lifelong relationships founded on engagement, learning, multiculturalism, and citizenship."
With reports of violence against the Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) community rising across the nation, we recognize that the elements and factors leading to the Anti-Asian violence are a part of the larger systems of oppression, white supremacy, capitalism, and the pitting of people against one another.
At the University of Maryland, we value Asian Americans as important members of our society who contribute rich resources to our campus community through research, work, teaching, and scholarship (reiterated and reaffirmed in the March 4, 2021 campus-wide email from Dr. Georgina Dodge, Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion, and Dr. Patty Perillo, Vice President for Student Affairs; and in the Feb. 26, 2021 letter from Dr. Patty Perillo, Vice President for Student Affairs, to the Division of Student Affairs).
