Security & Access
Access Card & Photo ID
Dominion Tower Parking Garage, 1051 NW 14th Street, Suite 145
All University community members are REQUIRED to have a University–issued Campus ID Card/ Badge displayed on their person while on the Medical Campus. Access to any area of the campus may be restricted by Security Personnel without a Campus ID Card/ Badge. University policy strictly prohibits anyone from possessing a Campus ID Card/ Badge not issued to them.
Lost or stolen access cards should be reported immediately to Security and can be replaced by the student for a fee. Access cards must be returned to the Department of Security office prior to graduation or withdrawal from the program to avoid a hold on the student’s records.
Students will have their photos taken during orientation and a time will be arranged to pick up your new ID badge.
The Department of Security at the medical campus employs over sixty uniformed officers who monitor building entrances and patrol the campus on foot and by vehicle 24 hours a day. You can reach medical campus security by calling 305 243 6000 or *711 from a campus phone.
Security officers provide escorts to any point on the medical campus (including Metrorail) 24 hrs per day, upon request. The vehicle patrol will provide jump–starts and assist you if you are locked out of your vehicle. Faculty, staff and students at the medical campus are encouraged to participate in the security effort through orientation programs offered throughout the year.
There are three other security and police entities at the medical center, in addition to our own. Jackson Memorial Hospital employs over eighty uniformed security officers; Bascom Palmer Eye Institute employs fifteen uniformed officers; and the Metro–Dade Police Department provides a small contingent of officers on a full–time basis.
