UMBC Mobile provides access to a wealth of information including news, events, video and an interactive campus map. This easy-to-use application allows users to choose their role--including Undergraduate Student, Graduate Student, Faculty or Staff--to filter news headlines.
Another must-have feature is the ability to view the campus's Transit Information in real-time on a map so you'll always know when the next bus will arrive at your location.
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.

Very nice app! But I would recommend making the app more personal and adding your myumbc. Where u can check ur email and other personal information based off ur log in.
Negative user experience
The news and directory tab took very long to process my requests. The purpose of a mobile application is to communicate information to the user immediately, my experience was the opposite. The home tab navigated me to UMBC's normal home page, I could of just used my phone browser instead...no advantage.
Cool app! UM-BC!!!!!!
Amazing school and app
