Performing Arts & Humanities Building
PAHB The arts and humanities connect us all by helping us understand the nature of the human condition and the broader cultural and social constructs that make up our lives. These disciplines have always played an important role in the lives of UMBC’s students.

The Performing Arts & Humanities Building will enhance UMBC’s teaching, research and public outreach and will heighten the visibility of the arts and humanities as major components of campus and community life. Every student – representing every major at UMBC – will take classes there, making it a cornerstone of student and alumni experiences to come.

A number of naming opportunities exist within the building, including classrooms, laboratories and studios, theatre and concert hall seating, faculty offices, an outdoor courtyard, as well as lobby space.

Retriever Learning Center at the Albin O. Kuhn Library
Library The student mind never sleeps; therefore, there is a need for a place on campus where active learning can take place at all hours.

The Albin O. Kuhn Library is the backbone of UMBC’s campus – and it is a central part of the student experience. That’s why it is the perfect location for a 24-hour center designed to embody – and inspire – the life of the mind.

The Retriever Learning Center at the Albin O. Kuhn Library will provide a space where students can engage groups in a highly visible way. Although the Center will be enclosed for safety purposes, the space inside will be designed with freedom of thought in mind. Comfortable furniture will move around easily to accommodate students as individuals and in groups; the wireless environment integrate with library holdings and mobile video screens to encourage collaboration and active learning.

Naming opportunities within The Retriever Learning Center include vending machine area, conference room, lounge, or the full center. Learn more about plans for The Retriever Learning Center by visiting For more information about naming opportunities, please contact:
