Parking and Transportation

Unique Venues AwardLocated in the Miami-Dade metropolitan area, the University of Miami offers conference guests seemingly limitless possibilities to travel to and from the campus as well as around town after their conference schedule is over. That's why the University of Miami was named as a runner-up by Unique Venues for being among the "Best Venue to Gather for the Day" and "Best Venue for Transportation Access" in 2018.

Local Airports

A drive to campus from Miami International Airport (MIA) – which serves all major airlines – takes just 20 minutes by car. The Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport (FLL) is no more than 45 minutes away, and Palm Beach International Airport (PBI) is just a 90-minute drive by car.

Public Transportation

If traveling by car is not an option, Miami-Dade’s public transportation system connects the University to both MIA, FLL and PBI airports. A quick ride on the Miami-Dade MetroRail system provides a direct route from MIA to a station located at the University of Miami’s campus. Additionally, riders can connect to the city’s TriRail system to travel via rail from campus to FLL and PBI. The MetroRail and Metrobus services also provide local routes throughout Miami-Dade County, including many stops near the University campus.

Ride-Share Services

For conference guests who do not wish to use public transportation, popular ride-share services operate in addition to Miami’s expansive taxi service to provide easy access to and from airports and local hotspots. Additionally, many major car rental companies have multiple pick-up and drop-off locations near campus.

A Walkable Campus

Once on campus, conference guests have the pleasure of strolling our walkable campus, which was designed to emulate a botanical garden. With no city streets or busy roadways cutting through our campus, the University of Miami offers a safe pedestrian experience for conference guests of all ages. With the longest walk lasting no longer than 15 minutes, conference planners have flexibility in tightly scheduling events – even those that occur in different locations across campus.

Campus Transportation

For conference guests who are unable or would prefer not to travel campus by foot, the University operates a network of on-campus shuttles, connecting conference guests to the many facilities utilized for conferences and camps.

Campus Parking

Conference planners have the ability to purchase campus parking passes for staff and conference attendees.
