The University Communications office aims to service media requests
with accurate, transparent and timely information. We partner with
the media to help tell the story of the university and its
leadership faculty, staff, students and alumni.
As a public institution, the university permits media
representatives to photograph and film in public, outdoor spaces on
UMD's campus. We encourage all members of the media who are visiting
to notify University Communications in advance by emailing
, calling 301.257.0073 or communicating
directly with any member of the University Communications staff. This
allows us to help coordinate interviews, if possible, offer parking options
and provide helpful information. Exceptions include members of the media
covering athletic events. These individuals should coordinate directly
