Student Life at Miami—“just what college should be.”
Oxford is student-centered, with plenty of places to eat, shop, and let loose on the weekends. Wherever you choose to reside there are plenty of ways to stay involved and meet new people. Miami is known for its inclusive environment and active student body: there are over 450 student organizations, and many national Greek organizations were established here. Over 80% of students choose to participate in one of the university’s 34 intramural sports (broomball, a game similar to ice hockey, is a campus favorite), and thousands of students come out to cheer on the Miami RedHawks in the university’s 19 NCAA varsity sports teams.
Miami is a residential campus, and nearly all first- and second-year students live on campus. Miami’s 35 residence halls are divided up into Living Learning Communities (LLCs) so that students can reside with people who share their interests or areas of study. There’s also a Transfer Student LLC, which you can opt into if you’re interested in living with other transfer students. For students who prefer to live off campus the surrounding town of Oxford provides the perfect place to complete their studies.
