Summer Housing

Miami offers Summer Session housing for students who are taking classes on the Oxford campus on a space-available basis. Housing is available at various rates based upon the length of the summer term that you request to live with us. For Summer 2018, students will be housed in Havighurst or Flower Hall for all summer sessions.

Please be advised that summer workshop housing is different than Summer Session housing. If you are part of a summer workshop with housing provided, your group contact will help coordinate your housing.

How to request a room

The H.O.M.E. Office will be accepting online summer school housing requests and walk-in requests.  Complete a Summer School Housing Request Form to indicate your interest in living in Summer School Housing.   By submitting the online request, you are notifying us of your desire to live with us this summer, however, your space cannot be reserved until you complete a contract on check-in day. When requesting a room, you can request a single or double room. A limited number of single occupancy rooms will be available and are on a first-come-first request basis.

How to register for a room

The HOME Office will be coordinating room assignments during the check-in process.

Summer check-in takes place according to the above schedule in 34 Campus Avenue Building. Check-in on June 17 & July 15 will occur at Havighurst Hall located at 350 Western College Drive. If your expected arrival date and time is different than the dates and times listed here, please contact our office at 513-529-5000 to schedule a time to check-in at the hall.

Upon arrival, the housing staff will ask you to complete a housing contract and will then assign you a room and roommate. Please be aware that room assignments and roommate information will not be available until the check-in date. A limited number of single occupancy rooms will be available and are on a first-come-first request basis. Specific requests regarding roommates will be granted as space permits. Students who request to room together MUST register and check-in at the same time.

Room access will be assigned to your ID card. Keep your ID card with you at all times. A $35.00 replacement fee will apply for lost ID cards. A $10.00 replacement fee will apply for broken or damaged ID cards. After receiving your assignment in our office, you will proceed to Havighurst or Flower Hall where the Residence Director will check you in. Please see the Residence Director of your hall to learn how and when check-out will occur.

If you are staying for concurrent summer sessions, you will only need to check in at the beginning of the first term and check out when you will be leaving the University for the summer. If you are staying for non-concurrent summer terms, you must move out of your current room at the end of the first term and will be reassigned for the next summer term.  If you determine that you need housing for additional summer terms, contact the H.O.M.E. Office immediately so that we can secure housing arrangements for you.

Meal services

Miami students may continue using Diplomat or Express meal plan declining dollars remaining from previous terms.  Any remaining Diplomat or Express summer declining balances will automatically carry over into your academic year meal plan. Restrictions may apply for scholarship paid meal plans. For summer-only students, the Envoy meal plan is available. There is a $100 minimum initial deposit required for this plan, and any Envoy Meal Plan balance will be credited to the student account at the end of summer, minus a $20 service fee. You may also add funds to your meal plan by visiting our office. (Summer Meal Plans/Additions are not available online.) Our summer hours are 7:30 am - 4:30 pm Monday through Friday and Sunday check-in days as listed. Specific information regarding food service locations and hours will be available at the end of April in the H.O.M.E. Office.

*No meal service will be available on May 28, 2018, Memorial Day. Limited meal service will be provided on July 4, 2018, Independence Day holiday. Subject to change, contact our office at 513-529-5000 with any questions.


If you decide not to attend summer school, please contact the Registrar to cancel your registration. This must be done no later than the third day of classes in order to receive a full refund. If you check into the residence hall and then withdraw from summer classes, you will be required to move out within 48 hours. Please see the Resident Director about check-out procedures so that they can officially cancel your housing reservation to ensure proper billing to your account.
