The Universities at Shady Grove’s (USG) operations are currently modified in a number of ways to protect the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff, given the continued challenges of the COVID-19 global pandemic. At this time, access to campus buildings continues to be restricted and most employees will continue working remotely to provide services. Please visit the USG Onward web page for additional details.

Students attending programs at USG get the unique opportunity to interact with students attending nine Maryland public institutions. The exposure to inter-institutional student life makes the experience at USG yet another benefit.

Our mission is to work in collaboration with our partner institutions to enrich the students' co-curricular experience while cultivating an active, enjoyable, and culturally inclusive campus environment. This work is done by providing opportunities for incoming and current students to think critically and independently, foster meaningful interpersonal relationships, and to develop into civic-minded and ethical leaders at USG.

Here are just a few ways to become engaged in student life at USG!
