 Users are required to swipe their UMBC ID cards or be a guest of a UMBC person in order to enter. 

  • Guests must be accompanied at all times by their UMBC student, faculty, or staff host. Unaccompanied guests will be removed from the RLC.  Hosts will be responsible for their guests and their actions.
  • Do not admit people you do not know.
