Note: Indoor Masking Mandate in Effect
The campus returned to full in-person operations on Aug. 2. STAMP will observe the following protocols in our building. NOTE: Effective Aug. 8, we are following the University mandate for mask wearing indoors for ALL (vaccinated and unvaccinated). Should any campus, state and/or national requirements change, this notice will be updated.
- Entrances: All entrances into the building are open. Note posted building hours.
- Masks/Face Coverings: In compliance and coordination with public health guidance, COVID-19 data, and our county mandates, the University of Maryland will now require masks to be worn indoors by ALL, regardless of vaccination status. For unvaccinated individuals, masks are also required while outdoors in crowded spaces.
- Seating in Common Areas: Full operations have returned, and open seating has been arranged in lounge areas, Food Court, and other public spaces. If you are unvaccinated, regardless of exemption status, please be seated 6 feet from others.
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."
Every community owes its existence and strength to the generations before them, around the world, who contributed their hopes, dreams, and energy into making the history that led to this moment. Some were brought here against their will, some were drawn to migrate from their homes in hope of a better life, and some have lived on this land for more generations than can be counted. Truth and acknowledgment are critical in building mutual respect and connections across all barriers of heritage and difference.
