myUMBC is the University’s centralized site for all the services and information students, instructors, and staff want to access quickly. Although the public can see some of the content such as upcoming events, “pawpular” community happenings, and “Spotlight” announcements, visitors must be logged in with their myUMBC account to use the site’s interactive features, such as registering for upcoming events or joining a group.
Once you are logged in, an icon menu will appear on the top right of the page. From this menu, you can quickly access campus alerts, your UMBC email, your Blackboard courses, your calendar (i.e. any events for which you are registered), your UMBC Google Drive, and any recent activity from your groups.
Once your paperwork has been filed, the HelpDesk will send you an email to a non-UMBC account (whatever you provided when you were hired). This email informs you that you have been granted permission to create a UMBC computer account. This email provides you with your Campus ID, a series of letters and numbers, which you will use to set up a more memorable UserName. The email also provides instructions for setting up the account.
It is essential that you create your computer account as soon as possible. Without this account, you will not be able to receive email or access UMBC technologies like Blackboard and myUMBC.
UMBC classrooms are equipped with technology to support you in your teaching. However, not all classrooms have the same technology. Please see this list of DoIT FAQs to determine what technology is available to you in the particular room in which you will be teaching.
Mac Users: Make sure to bring an adapter if you want to use your computer for any reason (to play Powerpoint slides, videos, music, etc.).
If you need help or would like to request additional technology for your classroom:
