October 25 – 27, 2024

Mark your calendars for Homecoming and Family Weekend, October 25 – 27, when all UMBC Retrievers, family, friends, and community members are invited to celebrate all things black, gold, and perhaps a little ghostly.

From the carnival to a puppy costume parade, from painting pumpkins to reuniting with fellow alumni, from the men’s and women’s soccer game to a monster dash – UMBC Homecoming and Family Weekend 2024 is a time to reconnect and celebrate your Retriever pride!

The full schedule including events leading up to the big weekend will be available in the coming months. If you have any questions in the meantime, contact us at homecoming@umbc.edu.


Black and gold FOREVER!
