Security and Access

Visitors may access this installation by providing a copy of their license, registration, and insurance and could be subject to a brief vehicle inspection. All visitors must enter through Hatfield Gate, located off of 2nd Street.

Non-DoD visitors are not permitted to request their own base access through the base security office. They must be sponsored in order to have a base access pass. Non-DoD ID holders are permitted to access the base without a pass by going through the vehicle search lanes and providing a copy of their valid driver's license.

Due to recent conditions of heightened security, civilian students taking UMUC classes on military bases may be required to complete a waiver in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act permitting UMUC to provide personal information (such as Social Security Number, address, and telephone number) to the military administration. You may find the FERPA waiver form online.
