Welcome Home Guide

Check out the Welcome Home online brochure!  This guide is discussed at Summer Orientation, and is full of information about Housing, Dining, Rec Sports, the Miami University Bookstore, and more!

Welcome to Miami University Housing!  Through our partnership with Student Affairs and the Office of Residence Life, we seek to ensure that your home away from home is safe, comfortable, and clean—and that it supports your education and personal growth. We have an array of housing options on campus to meet the diverse needs and interests of our students. Miami requires first and second year students to live on campus, and also provides a limited number of spaces for third and fourth year students each year. From our traditional corridor residence halls to apartment-style living, there’s something for everyone.

We are here to help! Check out the links in this section to read our Frequently Asked Questions, learn about Miami’s residence halls, room selection, meal plan accounts, and much more!

Room Change Requests for Returning Students

Returning students who have submitted room change requests should check their email regularly, as we are working through the summer to match as many requests as possible.  If you would like to change or update a room change request, please login to your MyCard account to do so!

Incoming Student Housing Assignments

Our staff is working hard this summer to match your community and roommate requests!  We'll be sending out housing assignments by email (to your Miami email account) at the end of July.
