Safety Tips and Resources

On a day-to-day basis, situations may occur that affect the safety of individuals or groups at Miami. While not reaching the level of emergency, they merit immediate attention. Miami offers many resources to support safety on campus. The Miami University Police Department is a full-service police agency. In addition to the police headquarters located on Oxford-Trenton Rd., four substations on the Oxford campus (Armstrong Student Center, Farmer School of Business, King Library and Yager Stadium) allow campus police to be more accessible and available to meet and interact with students.

Miami Police promotes campus safety in the following ways:

  • Miami police officers are always on duty, patrolling the campus on foot, on bikes, and in cars 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
  • Officers respond to calls from the public, initiate enforcement action when they observe a crime and engage in proactive patrol
  • MUPD works cooperatively with the Oxford Police Department and other local law enforcement agencies
  • MUPD works cooperatively with the Office of Community Standards to enforce Miami's Code of Student Conduct

Miami Police sponsor the following crime prevention and safety awareness programs:

  • Emergency phones on campus
  • SafeRide service offered through Butler County Regional Transit Authority (BCRTA) call (513)-785-5237 or toll free (855)42-BCRTA
