Blue Light Emergency Phones

University of Miami’s Blue Light Phone Program helps to keep 'Canes safe by providing access to UMPD and emergency services from many locations on campus. The Coral Gables campus has over 100 Blue Light Phones. These may be stand-alone pole mounted, fastened to the outside of buildings, or on multiple locations on each floor of our parking garages.  Simply look for the blue light and you'll find the phone box nearby.

To use the Blue Light Phone, press the button and a UM Police dispatcher will answer. We encourage the University community to use the Blue Light phones for both emergency and non-emergency calls.

As soon as the phone is activated, the location of the phone is displayed on the UMPD’s switchboard, so that UMPD can quickly identify your location. If a caller doesn’t speak (or isn't able to speak), an officer is immediately dispatched to the location of the phone.
