No Log In Required: You can access all features as a guest.
Easier Sign-On*: If you do have an account, log in once to the UMBC app and from that point forward use
Touch ID or a 4-digit PIN to quickly log in later.
*Not available for people using DUO second factor authentication.
Personalized Content: If logged in, the UMBC app will feature content and resources tailored to you.
There are four tabs to help you find what you need:

Places: Learn more about places around you: hours, offices, maps, upcoming events, and more. Also browse the campus map, find buildings, track buses, or find a place to eat.
Events: See what’s happening on campus right now or browse calendars of upcoming events.
UMBC (University of Maryland, Baltimore County) is a mid-sized public research university that combines the emphasis on teaching found at the best liberal arts colleges with the innovation of a research university. You’ll find a lively campus of students—inspired by and often working alongside faculty who are leaders in their fields—thinking about the hard questions of society, science and creative expression, and then moving beyond the classroom to make a difference. The Carnegie Foundation ranks UMBC in the category of Research Universities with high research activity.
Biometric/two-factor authentication bug fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
Just a website in a mobile wrapper
UMBC ‘23 freshman here. I had high hopes for this app. I’ve seen many great university apps, as well as many awful ones. Unfortunately, this is not one of the good ones.
This app serves no function that the myUMBC website can’t do by itself. The navigation is less intuitive, and the pages often load slower than they do in Safari. I’d really love to see a legitimate mobile app, and I think it could have a lot of potential. It needs a full redesign and rebuild from the ground up using a native app platform, rather than a website in a mobile wrapper. Two stars because it “works” (even though it’s useless).
I have UI/UX design experience and I would love to help out! Feel free to contact me!
The app does not allow access to blackboard or email. You able to see if you have email, but will not be able to open or send messages.
Lately won't open certain things
Lately the app has completely stopped letting me access some applications. I have been using other apps to preform these tasks or logging into my umbc through my safari. I believe that this somewhat ruins the app because it is supposed to allow easy access to my umbc on the go. Before this, in the past, I was having some troubles logging using the pin and fingerprint scanner and issues fully loading some applications that are now completely blocked off.
