Mask and Face Coverings:

Effective March 1, 2022, and in accordance with CDC guidelines, masks are no longer required in indoor spaces at the University of Miami on the Coral Gables campus and Marine campuses.  There are different levels of vulnerability.  Individuals who wish to wear a mask for their protection are encouraged to do so, and that decision should be respected by all members of our community.

Many of our instructors and class facilitators are volunteers!

The University of Miami Parking & Transportation is responsible for parking & transportation policies. UM would like to facilitate your visit to our beautiful campus. Please familiarize yourself with parking and mobility options.

METRORAIL/METROBUS: Our campus has a Metrorail stop which makes for a convenient visit. From the University Metrorail stop, you are able to get a MetroBus to get you close to Lau Founders Hall offices. From the Metrorail stop, take bus 56 south and exit at San Amaro Drive at Brescia (that's 4 stops from the Metrorail station). It’s a 3 minute walk to our offices.

RIDESHARE / CARPOOLING: Please be reminded that you can avoid bringing a vehicle on campus by taking advantage of one or more of the many alternative transportation options by visiting www.get2um.com. We strongly encourage OLLI members to rideshare, carpool, ride with a friend, use a rideshare service (like Lyft or Uber) or take public transportation to our campus location! The OLLI staff are happy to give you information about setting up a rideshare service on your Smart Phone.  Our OLLI Café/kitchen area is a great place to find a carpool buddy, or you can use a rideshare service.

SHORT-TERM PARKING OPTIONS: Street Parking is available depending on the time of day. Pay-by-the-hour parking spaces are available along San Amaro Drive. These parking meters are under the jurisdiction of the City of Coral Gables. Spaces fill up early.

CAMPUS PARKING OPTIONS:  Parking on the University of Miami campus in UM lots is extremely limited. All vehicles parked on the University of Miami campus are required to display a UM parking permit from 8:00am to 4:00pm from Monday through Friday. OLLI members may purchase a discounted GRAY zone parking permit from the UM Parking Department. You can find all the details on their website: www.miami.edu/parking. There is a cost for the full year, and prices are prorated weekly. Permits expire on August 15 each year. The OLLI parking permit allows you to park in the Gray Zone lots around Lau Founders Hall and any other nearby lots where signs specify the Gray Zone. The parking permit does guarantee you will find a parking space. You will be required to show your OLLI membership card and valid vehicle registration when purchasing a permit. Call the UM Parking Department at 305-284-3096 for more details and hours of operation. There is also metered street parking within walking distance of Lau Founders Hall.

Please note:  The Gray permit zone is in the vicinity of the Newman Alumni Center, which hosts events on a regular basis throughout the year.
