Our No. 1 priority is the continued wellbeing of our faculty, staff and students. To that end, and in consultation with our medical experts, we have instituted the following protocol:

  • All faculty, staff and students must fill out the P3 app prior to coming to campus
  • We recommend that facial coverings continue to be worn indoors
  • Frequent washing of the hands, preferably with soap and water, must occur

We know that the FIU community has questions surrounding the use of the P3 app. Here are some FAQs surrounding the app and its use.

Frequently asked questions


Faculty and staff



  • Do visitors have to be invited to come to an FIU location?

    Yes, any visitors coming to any FIU location (MMC, BBC, Engineering Center, Brickell, MBUS, Broward) must be invited by the university and must complete the Panthers Protecting Panthers (P3) Safety Questionnaire online.

  • How will I be notified that the individual has been cleared to visit?

    A notification will be sent to the requester as well as to the invitee informing them that the visitor has submitted the P3 questionnaire. The notification will tell both parties whether the invitee (visitor) has passed or failed.

  • Who is allowed to invite a visitor?

    Currently, only faculty and staff are allowed to invite visitors. Students may not invite any visitors to any of the FIU locations.

  • As a visitor, can I download the FIU P3 app to complete the questionnaire?
