The University of Southern Mississippi has partnered with the City of Hattiesburg's Hub City Transit to provide convenient and safe transportation on the University's Hattiesburg campus, as well as connect to the city's existing network of transit routes. Hub City Transit's "Gold Route" includes 14 stops on campus, two of which offer opportunities to transfer to the city's existing transit system. Location of the stops can be found at usm.edu/gold-route with services to the USM community Mondays through Fridays, 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. University Police Department remains on call to transport students, faculty and staff in safety or emergency situations.

The UPD has strategically placed code blue phones throughout the Hattiesburg, Gulf Park and Gulf Coast Research Laboratory's locations. Take a few minutes to locate and identify code blue phones where you park, work, walk, or play at /police/emergency-telephones.php (Hattiesburg campus) or https://www.usm.edu/map/#gulf-park-campus (Gulf Park campus) and https://gcrl.usm.edu/about_us/location.php (Gulf Coast Research Laboratory Halstead site).

If you have an emergency, simply press the red button, once activated these phones will directly dial into the UPD dispatch office where a patrol unit will be dispatched for assistance.
