Safety Escorts

UMPD 24/7 Safety Escort Service:


A UM Police employee or security officer will make sure you are free to walk the campus safely any time and on any day, holidays and school breaks included.  One of these professionals will meet you and walk with or transport you safely to your destination.  All escort providers carry a radio and are in constant contact with UMPD.

Anyone may request a safety escort, at no cost.  Safety escorts generally only cover campus property, including the University Village area and the Gables One Tower.  The average wait time for an employee to respond to your location is under 15 minutes.  While the Safety Escort service is not intended to be a regularly scheduled service, in advance, there is no limit to how many safety escorts you may request.  For more information, contact the UMPD Crime Prevention Office at 305-284-1105.

Call 305-769-6065 to get a ride between the Coral Gables campus and residential areas that border the Coral Gables campus.

It is important to note that the service will pick up/drop off on campus as well as the streets that border the Coral Gables. For example, drop off/pick up service will be offered along Red Road, San Amaro Drive, Ponce De Leon Blvd, Campo Sano Avenue and Pisano Avenue, but will not go further than these streets that border the Coral Gables campus or to individual homes.
