Reaching You Before and After a Hurricane

Update and maintain your online information

With the flurry of tropical storm activity that has arisen the past few days, it’s clear that we’ve entered the peak of the hurricane season—and all members of the UM community are urged to take steps today to ensure that the University can communicate with you in case a storm threatens our area.

Now is the time to make sure the University has your current contact information by verifying your profile on MyUM at www.miami.edu/myUM. When a situation warrants, mass e-mails (as well as voice and text messages for certain emergencies) containing emergency information will be sent.

To confirm or update your information: Log on to myUM. On the home page, click on “Update Personal & Address Information” in the “Personal & Biographical Info” section in the right-hand column.

Before any tropical storm or hurricane: Go to myUM at www.miami.edu/myUM to provide information about where you would be staying if you need to evacuate your residence. Click on “Update Storm Contact Information” in the “Personal & Biographical Info” section in the right-hand column to furnish this data.

After a storm: Students, faculty, or staff who are forced to evacuate or temporarily relocate to another area should notify the University of their new location and contact information by going to recover.miami.edu. This is the online site where you should "check in" following a hurricane. This will help us determine that all members of our UM community are safe and ascertain who needs emergency assistance.

For more information on hurricane and emergency preparedness, visit www.miami.edu/prepare.
