Mask Distribution for Off-Campus Students

Dear Off-Campus Terps:

Let’s all work together to prevent the spread of coronavirus for everyone at UMD. While on campus, you must wear a face covering #4Maryland at all times indoors, and outdoors when other people are nearby. To help keep you and our campus community safe, the university is giving you two free TerrapinSTRONG masks.

You can pick them up in any of three ways:

Method 1

If you live in:

  • The Varsity

  • University Club

  • Terrapin Row

  • Landmark

  • Domain College Park

  • Alloy by Alta

  • University View

  • The Enclave

  • Mazza Grandmarc

  • Graduate Hills and Gardens

  • Parkside at College Park

Just present your UMD ID card, a copy of this email, or your UID for pickup beginning Aug. 19. 

Method 2

If you live somewhere else or were unable to get your masks at your off-campus housing location, you can pick up your masks Sept. 14 and 15 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. at the tent outside of the following locations:

  • Physical Sciences Complex

  • Tawes Plaza

  • Xfinity Center

You will receive an email on Sept. 7 that will include a barcode to claim your masks. Students can also pick up masks on behalf of others.  Just be sure to have the unique barcode e-mail for each individual at the time of pickup. Be sure to wear a face covering and stay 6 feet from others.

Method 3

Masks will also be available for pickup Sept. 16-25 at the following locations during their business hours: 

As a reminder, all students must have a COVID-19 test before and after arriving on campus. Please review the UMD COVID-19 Student Testing Information. If you have any questions regarding face mask distribution, please email Malia Witherspoon at
