Exploring Campus

Once you are all settled in and have met the other residents in your corridor, you probably want to get out and see what your campus looks like in more detail. Walk, bike, or ride the Miami Metro to these main areas of campus.

Shriver Center

Located in the center of campus, Shriver is filled to the brim with certain Miami essentials, including ATMs and meeting facilities. Haines Food Court and Tuffy's provide several dining choices and offer toasted rolls, a tasty Miami tradition. Shriver Center is also home to the University Box Office, First Miami Student Credit Union, Spring Street Market, and the University Bookstore, which sells sportswear, textbooks, and school supplies.

Recreational Sports Center

After giving your mind a workout, give your body one at the Recreational Sports Center. All you need to get into the Rec is your student ID, motivation, and determination.

The Rec offers basketball, volleyball, and racquetball courts, and several other calorie-burning activities:

  • The Pool
    The Corwin M. Nixon Aquatic Center is open for lap swimming and diving during designated hours. Visit the whirlpool or leisure pool anytime.
  • Weight Gym
    Free weights are available in the lower part of the fitness center, and weight machines are on both levels. The machines all have diagrams and instructions explaining how to use them and what muscles they tone. Staff members are available to answer any further questions.
  • Aerobics Classes
    Aerobics classes offer variety to the normal workout routine. Sessions are free for the first two weeks of each semester, but after that you must purchase a pass.
  • Cardio Machines
    The Rec offers stairmasters, stationary bikes, rowing machines, mountain climbing machines, Nordic-Track machines, and elliptical steppers. And the Rec staff can always offer assistance.
  • Climbing Wall
    This 2,500-square-foot indoor rock wall is another alternative to traditional exercise. Stop in for a lesson and start scaling this indoor mountain.
  • Outdoor Pursuit Center (OPC)
    Located on the lower level of the Rec, the OPC organizes trips over weekends, extended breaks, and holidays for adventurous people to go whitewater rafting, rock climbing, cave exploring, kayaking, camping, and many other outdoor expeditions. Visit the Outdoor Pursuit Center for more information about OPC activities.

The other three libraries, Brill Science Library located in Hughes Hall, Art & Architecture in Alumni Hall, and the Music Library in the Center for Performing Arts offer quiet study spaces as well.

Cook Field

Located between East Quad and Academic Quad, this field hosts numerous intramural sports events as well as concerts and the annual 20/20-10/10 Bike Race, the second largest collegiate bike race in America.

Opened in Fall 2006, this new $35 million state-of-the-art facility features two NHL-size sheets of ice, including the 3,200-seat Steve Cady Arena, where you can come to cheer on the RedHawks hockey team. You can also test your personal skills at hockey, ice skating, or broomball by participating in one of over 500 intramural teams that play here.

Millett Hall

Millett is home to RedHawk basketball and volleyball. Fall Commencement is also held in Millet Hall, and throughout the year, various entertainment acts are performed here as well. In recent years, Miami students have enjoyed such guest artists as Bill Cosby and Jay Leno.
