Housing

Creating a home away from home is easy at Miami University. You'll live in one of our 20 residence halls that house first-year students, some of which are also home to upperclass students.

Residence Halls

All Miami University residence halls are human-scale (no high-rise towers here) to make it easy to feel at home. The number of students housed in each residence hall varies. The largest first-year hall houses 352 people, while the smallest houses 51. Most residence halls are arranged in corridors with a large bathroom for each corridor or floor. All first-year halls are coeducational, with men and women living in separate corridors of 16–30 students who share a hallway, a resident assistant, and a spirit of community through group activities.

Each residence hall also provides the following facilities:

  • living rooms
  • study rooms
  • kitchenettes
  • recreation and TV rooms
  • laundry facilities
  • mailroom
  • community bathrooms
  • vending machines

Not all halls are equipped for wheelchair access. If you or a family member needs special access, please notify the Office of Student Housing and Meal Plan Services.

Rooms

Our residence halls include single, double, triple, and quadruple occupancy rooms. The size and layout of student rooms also vary from one residence hall to another.

Each room includes these items:

  • extra-long twin beds with 80" x 36" mattresses
  • dressers
  • desks with chairs
  • closets, mirrors
  • recycling bin and trash can
  • smoke detector
  • window with roller shade and curtain rod
  • ceiling light

All rooms are equipped with a 100 megabit-per-second Ethernet connection for each student in addition to the wireless network access available in every building on campus. Each room also includes standard cable service. Although most students bring cell phones to campus, you may elect to have an optional landline telephone in your room. Room phones and no-contract cell phone plans are available through the Office of Telecommunications.

Hall Staff

The Residence Life staff includes full-time professionals, graduate students, and undergraduate students.

A resident assistant (R.A.) lives in each corridor of the residence halls to help new students make the transition from high school to college and to plan special events so students get to know one another. These carefully selected and trained upperclass students are also familiar with the scheduling process and often share their own knowledge and experience when recommending fun or challenging classes and providing information about certain professors.

A first-year adviser, who also lives in each residence hall, serves as both the resident director and the academic adviser to all the first-year students. These people offer career advice, help students organize their academic agenda for an on-time graduation, and assist with course scheduling.

Living Learning Communities

First-year students live in residence halls known as Living Learning Communities. In these communities, an advisory council made up of students, staff, and faculty develop programs that support a particular theme, allowing you to live with other students who share some of your interests or field of study.

What type of programs will be hosted in your residence hall? That all depends on which living learning community you choose. Miami offers a variety of theme halls such as Celebrate the Arts, RedHawk Traditions, Women in Science Disciplines, and many more. You can take classes with your fellow residents, get involved in social activities, work out with an intramural sports team, form a study group, or attend arts events and discuss them afterward. You'll explore new ideas while creating friendships that last a lifetime.
