News and Announcements

The University of Maryland, College Park is pleased to announce the launch of a new glass recycling collection program on campus. Be on the look out for the new purple glass recycling dumpsters!
FM Plumbing Services has performed domestic water systems tests in all academic and administrative buildings to ensure water systems and features—sink faucets, drinking fountains, etc.—are safe to use. 
As part of re-opening the campus from a period of low census and the resulting low flow of water through building water systems, it is recommended that departments follow service steps for department refrigerators with water dispensers or ice makers.
COVID-19 safety signage is being installed in all buildings currently in use. Facilities Planning is working with the Provost Office to develop circulation patterns for spaces/areas within academic and administrative buildings where social distancing could present challenges.  
With the warm weather outside and the air conditioning on inside, there are a couple of simple steps you can take to maximize A/C efficency and to help control the levels of moisture and humidity to help prevent mold and mildew.
