Thank you in advance for your compliance with the measures detailed below.

To ensure the health and safety of our campus community, as well as any visiting prospective students and families, we have put in place the following measures based on guidance from public health and government agencies and numerous multi-disciplinary University committees.

The Office of Undergraduate Admission requests that you perform a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 self-checker before taking your self-guided tour. We kindly ask that you depart campus and contact a healthcare provider if you do not feel well, have exhibited any of the symptoms on the CDC COVID-19 self-checker, or if you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

In accordance with CDC guidance, the Office of Undergraduate Admission kindly asks that you do not take a tour if you have traveled internationally within the past 14 days.

Face coverings are mandatory at all times while in public spaces on our campuses, whether indoors or outdoors. Failure to follow this requirement will result in your removal from campus. This is a matter of public health in which the entire campus community, as well as visiting prospective students and families, must act in concert to help one another. The CDC does not recommend use of face shields for normal, everyday activities or as a substitute for cloth face coverings.

Practice physical distancing. Stay at least 6 feet away from others, do not gather in groups, and avoid contact, such as shaking hands.

Public restrooms will be available for use. We strongly encourage abiding by public health guidelines, including washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, or using hand sanitizer.

Capacities at various on-campus locations have been reduced to accommodate the need for physical distancing. Before visiting popular locations on the Coral Gables campus, such as the Campus Store and Food Court, we ask that you first review the real-time density monitor. At a glance, the density monitor will let you know if there is capacity at a particular location: green means there's lots of space, yellow means it's filling up, and red means it's at capacity, so please come back later. 

The Office of Undergraduate Admission is currently unable to provide in-person information sessions and individual appointments. If you have specific questions about your application or supporting documents, we ask that you contact your assigned admission counselor and set up a time to speak by phone or virtual platform, such as Zoom or Microsoft Teams.

While the University of Miami is taking all precautions to safeguard our campus community, we cannot eliminate the risk of COVID-19 exposure and infection on campus. Please be reminded that you are undertaking your self-guided tour at your own risk. If any visitor presents symptoms and subsequently tests positive for COVID-19 within seven (7) business days of visiting campus, please report that information to the University of Miami Health System at 305-243-ONEU, Option 4. If you test positive for COVID-19 more than seven (7) business days from visiting campus, you do not need to report that information to us.
