University Safety and Security

Miami 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.

Emergency Procedures and Contacts

Emergencies from chemical spills to severe weather involve individual and collective action to respond safely. Use these guidelines to be prepared for a variety of potential dangers.

Safety Resources

Our obligation is to the safety and security of our students. Various resources, programs, and initiatives are available to maintain safe campuses. This includes resources about sexual and relationship violence prevention, bias-related incidents, anti-hazing, and FAQs about common open carry issues.

Sexual Assault, Misconduct, and Interpersonal Violence Prevention

Miami strives to create an environment and culture that is safe for all community members and respectful of all individuals. Sexual and interpersonal violence prevention and response are crucial to creating a safe, supportive, and healthy environment for students, faculty, and staff.
