Campus Life & Activities

Living together at the University of Miami

While on campus at the University of Miami, you will be a part of a dynamic community of students and staff, living together in one of Miami's residential colleges. 

Whether you’re watching a movie or working on a group project, it’s great to live with your friends. And if you have any questions, your Residence Counselor (RC) lives down the hall and is there for you 24/7.

HERE'S OUR SET-UP:

  • Live in double rooms with communal hallway bathrooms.
  • Every air conditioned room includes a bed, study desk, closet, and Wifi.
  • Lounges, free laundry facilities, and the Summer Discovery office are all in our residence hall.

DELICIOUS ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT DINING ON CAMPUS

YOUR HEALTH + SAFETY ARE OUR PRIMARY CONCERN

Our RCs are committed to the support and supervision of Summer Discovery students. Daily sign-ins and room checks are mandated for your safety. You are free to walk around campus and Coral Gables (our ‘home areas’) in small groups. If you have a question, RCs are on duty to help.
