Room Selection

This Room Selection information is for current students. If you are an incoming First Year student, your housing assignment will be made by our staff during the late spring and early summer before you arrive on campus.

Rising Second Year Students (Current First Year Students)

All full-time first year students and second year students are required to live on campus through the spring semester of their second academic year of enrollment. For current first year students completing their first year and preparing for their second year at Miami, room selection will occur during spring semester, details below.
