We're open: Make the most of your visit at STAMP

Welcome to STAMP. We look forward to transforming and enriching your Maryland experience!  

This semester has been unprecedented—including hanging out in STAMP. We love that so many people count on us as a space to gather, eat, learn and study. And we were excited to welcome folks back this fall, ensuring a safe space that helps students, faculty, staff and visitors make connections, and enjoy all that STAMP has to offer.


Make the most of your visit and plan ahead. Come back to this page for the most current hours for food, retail and offices that serve students. UPDATE: Please note that we have begun modified business hours in alignment with the November announcement from the UMD President's Office that campus will transition to an online environment, with students having the option to remain home after the Thanksgiving holiday. Services below will have limited hours and services, so please contact them for their most current operational hours:

  • The University Book Center has undergone an extensive $1 million renovation. Come check out expanded merchandise, clearance Terp apparel, books, supplies and more.
  • Get answers to your questions about joining one of more than 800 student organizations at the Student Involvement Suite. Check out Student Entertainment Events (SEE) website for a full schedule of events. Find resources if you're a veteran, commuter, transfer/off-campus, undocumented/immigrant or graduate student at the Engagement Office. Both of these spaces are on the Ground Floor. 
  • On the First Floor, visit the LCSL Office to learn about leadership, service and co-curricular programs to round out your experience. Or find information and resources at the MICA office on multicultural involvement programs, including LatinX, Black students, AAPI, LGBTQ, Native students and more.
  • Note that food from STAMP dining vendors (use the GrubHub app) and textbooks from the University Book Center can also be ordered online and picked up at their curbside tents at Union Lane on the outside of STAMP. 
  • Grab-and-go or sit-down dining, Starbucks coffee, famous Maryland Dairy ice cream, convenience store sundries can all be done during your visit.
  • Need a stamp for your letter, mail a package; maybe make a deposit or withdrawal from your savings account? The UPS Store and M&T Bank are open.

In order to stay safe, many of these activities couldn't be done as they have in the past. As our Student Involvement Suite, Food Court, Coffee Bar, University Book Center, M&T Bank, retail spaces, and staff offices re-opened for the fall semester, safety procedures and protocols were in full effect, in compliance with state and University guidelines, and will continue through the end of the semester. Look for 4Maryland signs throughout the building with safety protocols, sanitizing stations and more. We ask that you do your part to help us all prevent the spread of COVID 4Everyone at UMD.

All our food, shops and retail spaces are following safety guidelines set forth by the CDC, State/County and University. All visitors to STAMP will be required to wear a face covering and observe posted signs. Please note that general access to our building is at the Main Front Entrance, facing Campus Drive. All other doors will require campus University ID card-swipes for entry, or will be locked. Please check back here for the latest hours of STAMP food, shops and retail partners. 

Frequently Asked Questions

STAMP Reopening FAQs


  • How do I enter the building? General Public access to the building is through the STAMP Main Entrance (facing Campus Drive) only. To provide enhanced public safety, ALL other STAMP entry doors will require University ID card swipe access or will be locked EXCEPT for the Main Entrance. Please also observe the Symptoms Checklist posted at these areas before entry. 
  • How is STAMP preparing for reopening the building? The building has had a deep cleaning since the March closure. Cleaning of public spaces throughout the building will occur twice a day. All public spaces and meeting rooms will be set up in accordance with physical distancing guidelines. Signs are being posted by elevators limiting the number of users of the elevator to allow for physical distancing. Signs with reminders about safe health practices to prevent the spread of COVID are being installed throughout the building. Staff are being issued face masks and being asked to complete the university-wide training for staff, as well as Stamp-specific trainings. Additionally, plexiglass is being installed around front desk areas.
  • How will Stamp capacity be monitored? 
    • How will traffic in/out/around Stamp be monitored? There will be designated in/out doors and traffic flow will be guided by signs throughout the building. 
    • How will room capacity be monitored? Furniture in common areas will be arranged in a way that allows for physical distancing and not additional capacity. Nicole will also do a walkthrough of various offices to ensure shared spaces are set up in a way that allows for physical distancing (but staff should also be sure to include in their reopening plans what needs to be removed from their spaces to allow for physical distancing).  
      • How will physical distancing be enforced? Room reservations requests will only allow for max capacity in alignment with physical distancing guidelines. Campus is still reviewing penalties associated with non-compliance and our policies will then be updated accordingly.   
    • Will there be temperature checks? Aligned with the personal responsibility we all have to do our part to keep this community safe, staff, faculty, and students will be required to complete the daily symptom monitoring checklist via an app which will ask whether or not someone has a temperature above a certain level. Personal responsibility and respect for one another will be critical for the success of the campus effort to return safely.  
  • Do we have any information about what space reservations might look like? Room reservation requests will only allow for max capacity in alignment with physical distancing guidelines. We do not know any more than this right now but will update our guidelines once we know. 
  • What practice/procedures are in place for individuals who refuse to wear face masks/shields/coverings? It is understandable that some individuals are not able to use these for health reasons. Campus is still working on this guidance. 
  • Individuals who are deaf or hearing impaired, are used to reading lips, which they are now unable to do with face masks. What accommodations is the university making for not only these individuals but other individuals who need accommodations? Stamp has purchased face masks with clear windows to accommodate this need. 
  • Will there be in-person events? In accordance with public health guidelines the majority of programs offered will be virtual this fall. We are tentatively planning some small in-person programs keeping personal safety and physical distancing in the forefront of our plans. Some events will offer virtual and in-person participation opportunities for a small group of students who may want to be physically distant, yet in community with others.
