Campus Safety and Security
As host of the first presidential debate in 2004, the University of Miami is extremely proud to showcase to the nation and the world the vibrancy and diversity of its campus and South Florida. At the same time, the University recognizes its obligation to protect its students, employees, neighbors, and guests.
The safety and security of all those involved in the debate and related events is a top priority. Since last year when it was announced that UM would host a debate, University officials have been working with local agencies, as well as agencies at the state and national level, to ensure safety and to develop a coordinated and unified plan to act accordingly for any contingency.
The week leading up to the debate will be a very busy time around campus. Traffic delays and changes in University operations are expected. The University has developed an extensive parking and traffic routing plan to minimize disruptions as much as possible. For more information on parking and traffic, visit the Transportation Issues page.
Check back to this Web page periodically to read announcements for changes in normal University operations or other advisories.
RECENT SECURITY UPDATES: (09/24/2004)
On Thursday, September 30, no guests or visitors of any sort will be permitted on the Coral Gables campus. In other words, only individuals who work or attend classes at the University of Miami AND have their 'Cane Card will be allowed on campus that day. This includes any guests of employees or students and deliveries from vendors such as Apricot Office Supplies. Mail and package delivery, including U.S. Postal Service, FedEx, and UPS, will be significantly scaled back on Thursday. If your office has deliveries scheduled for Thursday from vendors, please make other arrangements.
