Logistics

Regardless of the event you seek to host at the University of Maryland, our team will provide best-in-class service to ensure an excellent experience for your team. Review the information below and contact a member of our Employer Relations team to discuss your event needs. 

Date and Time

Our student class schedules vary widely by college and academic department, however we offer the following guidance when considering when to host an event.

  • Late afternoon (3-5pm) and early evening hours (5-7pm) are typically ideal. 
  • Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays are the best days during the week for events. We have found that mid-day lunch sessions also tend to work on Fridays.
  • Our academic calendar is a great resource for checking holidays and other potential campus conflicts.
