Campus Safety and Security

Emergency Text Messaging SystemMiami is committed to maintaining a safe learning environment for all students and members of the university community. While Miami's campus is relatively safe, crime does occur on campus. Each member of the university community has a responsibility to contribute to the well-being of the community. 

Everyone must participate in crime prevention efforts and develop good personal safety habits, including the following:

  • Lock your apartment or residence hall doors.
  • Don't prop open residence hall exterior doors and don't let people you don't know into the halls.
  • Report any suspicious activity to Miami Police (or off campus to Oxford police).
  • Secure your personal property.
  • Walk in groups at night.
  • Be aware of your surroundings and avoid areas with which you are not familiar.
  • Use BCRTA SafeRide, which operates from 11 p.m. until 3 a.m. Mon–Sat and until 1 a.m. Sun (513-785-5237 or toll-free 855-42-BCRTA)
  • Sign up to receive emergency text messages (see right).

Additional crime prevention tips are provided by the Miami University Police Department.
