Change in Wellness Center Guest Policy

Effective Monday, students who want to bring a guest at the current $5 rate must purchase a guest pass at least one day in advance. Guests brought in on the same day will be charged $10. The policy change is aimed at discouraging outsiders from approaching UM students and asking to be signed in as a guest.

Free Flue Shots

All students and University of Miami employees are now able to get free flu shots at the health center. A valid Cane Card is required.

Parking Meter Enforcement Extended

Beginning Monday, motorists will need to pay for on-street parking meters until midnight, including Sundays, when they park in the City of Coral Gables. Parking enforcement will also be in effect on Sundays from 9 a.m. until midnight.

The extended hours will also affect UM campus meters located on Stanford Drive, Dickinson Drive, Pavia Street and San Amaro Drive. All other meters on campus will not be affected by this change.
