Housing

On-campus housing will be available to all students when taking courses in Oxford, and apartment-style housing will be recommended for San Francisco and Cincinnati. In Luxembourg, students will live with host families.

Cincinnati

Housing in Cincinnati is located in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood and downtown Cincinnati. While we encourage students to live in the identified housing in Cincinnati, it is not required. We have housing options each semester or students are welcome to find their own housing in Cincinnati, and students do have the option to live at home if they are from the Cincinnati area.

Students typically have cars in Cincinnati as internships and company visits are not always downtown or in Over-the-Rhine. However, there are public transportation options as well as Uber/Lyft/Getaround if a student does not have a car in Cincinnati.

Students who participate in the Cincinnati program and commute from Oxford find that spending over 10 hours each week in a car takes away from the experience, forcing them to miss out on potential networking events. 

It will be each student’s responsibility to sign a lease in the recommended housing with the landlord and pay the security deposit and rent on time. Rent is paid on a monthly basis by check. Housing typically consists of double-occupancy rooms in shared apartments. However, students wishing to live in a single-occupancy room may have the opportunity to do so for a higher cost, should single rooms be available.

Luxembourg

MUDEC Chateau in Differdange, Luxembourg

In Luxembourg, MUDEC carefully considers students’ housing preferences and places them with a host. Many of our hosts have been housing MUDEC students for years and love meeting new Miami students.

The host family will provide a room and continental breakfast, the opportunity to practice French or German with native speakers, and an insider's view to European life. MUDEC alumni sometimes forge lifelong friendships with their European hosts!

Note that most students live in between Differdange (location of the MUDEC Chateau) and Luxembourg City (the capital). Depending on the day, DIF students will take the bus or the train to the Chateau for classes or commute to their internships.

San Francisco

Golden Gate Bridge in San FranciscoHousing in San Francisco is located in the Alamo Square and North Beach neighborhoods. It is highly recommended that students live in the housing designated by Miami University. This immersive program is meant to be an experience for the entire cohort, and living together is an essential part of the experience.

Housing exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis and are very rare. Housing cost in San Francisco is the highest in the nation, and the housing designated by Miami University is in an extremely safe area. Students have found that other low-cost options do not include the necessary amenities or allow them to remain close to their cohort, or are in potentially unsafe neighborhoods. We have chosen this housing to ensure student safety and an overall positive experience.

In San Francisco, there are a plethora of public transportation and on-demand taxi options that make having a car in the city simply unnecessary.
