UMD: A Globally Connected University

International Coffee Hour Sponsorship Form

If you are an organization that would like to promote its services to the Maryland international community please consider sponsoring an International Coffee Hour.  The International Coffee Hour atmosphere is friendly and informal and we think you'll enjoy the opportunity to publicize your programs and activities to the attendees.

During the Fall and Spring semesters the International Coffee Hour is held every Wednesday from 2:30 to 3:30pm in the ground floor atrium of H.J. Patterson Hall​, Global Crossroads Lounge.

We also request that sponsors supply refreshments for 50 to 80 people. This usually includes cold drinks and snacks such as fruits/vegetables, chips, crackers, cookies, or doughnuts. Sponsors often purchase these items from grocery stores and spend about $75. 

Items such as coffee, tea, cups, napkins, serving utensils and trays are provided by International Student & Scholar Services.

To sponsor an International Coffee Hour, simply complete the form below and indicate which date you would prefer (for a list of upcoming Coffee Hour Dates, click here).  If you have questions regarding sponsorship, please contact Aviana Symon at
