Residential Communities

Housing & Residential Life offers on-campus housing in five residential colleges and the University Village for approximately 4,300 University of Miami undergraduate students. All freshmen students are required to live in University housing for two academic semesters, with the exception of those who live with their parents or guardians within Dade or Broward counties.

Focused on student success, living in a residential college offers residents the opportunity to engage in a wide variety of programs and events with particular emphasis on student belonging and cultural exploration, intellectual engagement, community living, campus connections, and personal development.

Housing & Residential Life takes great pride in its program and does its very best to maintain an environment conducive to learning and positive well-being. Offering single and double rooms in all facilities, we also provide fully furnished rooms to all residents.

Each room and apartment bedroom is air-conditioned and equipped with a bed (extra-long twin in the residential colleges and full-size in University Village), dresser, desk, chair, trash can, recycling container, and window coverings.


Eaton Residential College

Students in Eaton are either a part of the First Year Experience (FYE) or the Continuing Student Experience (CSE), meant to continue the engagement of upperclassmen in the on-campus community while meeting their changing needs.

The First Year students in this building live together to provide the same first year support and community given to the students living in Hecht and Stanford.

Rooms in this building are suite style with four students sharing an in-suite bathroom that connects the two rooms or private single with a private bathroom.

CSE residents can get involved in the same activities as First Year students, but their programming is focused on advancing their education and career.

Hecht & Stanford Residential Colleges

Students living in these buildings are all part of the First Year Experience (FYE). With personalized academic and career support from live-in staff, students in these buildings have the opportunity to experience everything that the University of Miami has to offer.

Many students form close bonds with their floors through living together, sharing a community bathroom, and participating in engagement opportunities led by their RA, FYF or the entire building staff.

On the weekend, students find themselves hanging out on the Intramural Fields across from Stanford, studying on a glider outside or in their study room, enjoying dinner with our faculty and staff, taking part in whatever program has been planned, or using the provided shuttles to run errands and visit nearby shopping areas like Dadeland Mall and the shops at Sunset Place.

Mahoney & Pearson Residential Colleges

Fully independent from the First Year Experience (FYE), life in Mahoney and Pearson is completely focused on the Continuing Student Experience (CSE). Students living in Mahoney and Pearson have established an initial comfort with campus and are looking to further explore the University of Miami and its many community offerings. Students have the option of having a vehicle which they can park in the garage located adjacent to the buildings.

Programming in these buildings is focused on experiential activities hosted throughout Miami and career-focused workshops, both of which allow students to grow socially, culturally, and professionally.

Featuring the same room style environment as Eaton, residents usually live with students they have formed bonds with from their first year.

University Village

Students living in University Village (UV) live in one of five different apartment models within one of seven buildings. Each apartment has a kitchen, a living & dining area with full-size appliances, laundry in-unit, private bedrooms and bathrooms, allowing for students to take control of their living experience.

Life in the UV still comes with support from Resident Assistants and all the familiar amenities from the Residential Colleges such as a front office for mail and packages, Wi-Fi and wired internet, maintenance, cable TV, security, and a computer lab. Students also can take advantage of their own parking garages and a convenience store just for UV residents.

By choosing to live in the University Village, upperclassmen can have the freedom of living on their own with the flexibility, safety and support that derives from living on campus.
