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!

Philo TV (IPTV) is now available in all residence halls and Heritage Commons!

Visit our Residential Services page to learn more about this great new service on campus.
