Step 1. Choose Your Housing and Dining Plans
Most first- and second-year students are required to live in University housing (see exceptions below). You'll be able to start working on your housing contract roughly 24 hours after confirming your enrollment. On the online housing contract, you will identify residence hall, dining, roommate, and other preferences. First-year students may also choose a living learning community through the housing contract process.
First-year students admitted for fall should submit the contract for University housing by May 3.
Transfer students should complete the contract for University housing and select their meal plan options as soon as possible after confirming their enrollment.
Students are not required to live on campus if they:
- Are at least 21 years old by the first day of classes
- Live with a parent, legal guardian, spouse, or dependent child(ren)
- Have been a full-time student at another college, university, or Miami Regional campus for two years or more
Students who are not required to live in University housing may use Miami’s Off-Campus Outreach website for help finding off-campus housing.
