The UMBC Commons is a great place to hangout. Comfortable furniture with ample space, plenty of restaurants and gaming rooms. The Game room has a pool hall, Ping-Pong tables and Xbox360 connectivity with Big-screen game nights and many activities throughout the week. The commons also has a great bar and a sports center.» Read More
There are movies every weekend in a lecture hall which transforms into a movie theater. And there are always events going on on campus. If you're not doing school work, there is always something going on whether it be a sporting event, Students Event Board event, or a club sponsored event. There are a wide variety of clubs you can join to keep busy!» Read More
Mostly, I hang out with my friends for fun and participate in events on campus. There are movie nights in one of the larger lecture halls, during which they air films that came out recently, and there are open-mic nights every Thursday in the Sports Zone!» Read More
Hm. For Fun you could go to the mall on the weekends or a lot of clubs meet on the weekend. I keep mentioning weekends because half the school goes home on the weekends. The school is such a huge commuter school. Um a lot of clubs meet on the weekday also, there are 200+ clubs. We have something called Free hour which is a Free hour Monday,Wednesdays and Fridays. It is from 12-1, a lot of clubs meet during that time, its cool but kinda sucks because ALL clubs think the same and schedule there meetings during the same time . So don't take on too much. UMBC is not a party school at all, if you are looking for a party school than college park might be a better fit» Read More
During the fall semester of 2012, I went to many cultural events on Friday nights (such as Caribbean Night and a Hispanic-Latino night). It's easy to get tickets for these events and then just get a group of your friends and have fun. There are also Open Mic nights on Thursdays and a Breakfast and Bingo event almost every Saturday evening. That just barely scratches the surface of all the countless things that you can do at UMBC during the week. If you want to know more, you're just gonna have to come and see for yourself!» Read More
