Housing and Meal Plan

The University of Miami offers undergraduate on-campus housing in five residential colleges and University Village that is comprised of seven buildings and two parking garages.

First-year students admitted for the fall semester should apply for housing by the priority deadline of May 15. Housing applications received after the priority deadline are accepted on a space-available basis. All non-local, first-year students are required to live in University housing for two academic semesters, as long as space is available, unless they apply for and meet one of the approved reasons for receiving an exception:

  • Been out of high school for more than one year
  • Married or has dependent children
  • 19 years of age or older
  • Extenuating circumstances that can be documented
  • Living at home with family in Miami-Dade or Broward County

First-years who plan to live off-campus must complete the Live-On Requirement Exemption form at miami.edu/housingexemption. 

First-year students admitted for the spring semester can apply for housing using the spring-only housing application available in CaneLink beginning in late October. Spring housing applications are due December 1. Housing applications received after that date are accepted on a space-available basis.
