Maintaining Healthy Campuses

Wi-fi available from parking lots

In an effort to help students that have issues with wi-fi connectivity at their homes, Miami University Regionals has installed large wireless capacity access points in parking lots on the Middletown and Hamilton campuses and a normal outdoor access point is being added to cover the south lot at the Voice of America Center. The poles -- two on each campus -- can handle several hundred users in the lots they cover.

Reducing the risk

Those opting for face-to-face instruction will return to find classrooms and common areas clearly defined to ensure social distancing guidelines are met. Per Miami University’s Healthy Together return to campus guidelines, facial coverings will be required indoors in all University buildings and outside when it is difficult to maintain physical distancing, such as while entering and exiting buildings, to promote the health and safety of all university members.

Campus safety precautions

Front-facing offices that provide support services have been retrofitted with plexiglass. Physical Facilities will provide daily cleaning and disinfecting of classrooms, breakrooms, bathrooms and public spaces.
