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 Selection for rising third and fourth year students is now open! Don't miss out on your chance to live on campus for the 2018-2019 Academic Year. Enjoy the convenience of living on-campus again. We will have space for more than 400 third and fourth year students.
You can be among the first to live in one of our two brand new residence halls - Withrow and Presidents - located near North Quad and the Baseball Field. Withrow will feature a large Starbucks store in the lower level, and both halls are near the North Quad Fitness Center in Martin Hall. Great locations like Heritage Commons, Maplestreet, Bishop, Beechwoods, Ogden, and others will be available to choose from as well!
We strive to make selecting your room as easy as possible. Our MyCard process will give you flexibility to search for private rooms, pull in roommates, and make your own room changes, simply by going online.

Current Off-Campus Students
If you currently live off-campus and are interested in moving back on-campus for the 2018-19 academic year, simply contact our office so that we can provide you with the ability to participate in the room selection process.
Due to the first and second-year live on requirement, we must reserve a predetermined number of rooms for our incoming first year and rising second year residents. In the event that we reach our capacity for Third & Fourth Year students, you will have the option of signing up to be on our Housing Waiting List.
