Experience an amazing campus at the University of Miami, and learn to be independent with the help of our incredible staff. Combining the incredible academic, athletic, and cultural opportunities at U Miami, Summer Discovery will be an experience you will never forget.
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.
Enjoy all-you-can-eat dining at the dining hall for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. When on campus, enjoy three meals a day. Vegetarian and gluten free options available.
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.
Not feeling well? Summer Discovery staff make all the medical appointments, accompany students to medical facilities, obtain prescription medications, and notify parents after medical visits. Appointments are made with the University of Miami Health System.
