Miami offers challenging academics, close faculty interaction, and an energetic student experience on one of America’s most beautiful campuses. Miami prepares students to think critically, succeed, and lead in their professions and communities.

Miami is a student-centered, residential public university in Oxford, OH. Named one of the eight original Public Ivy universities, we are nationally recognized as a premier liberal arts undergraduate institution. Here, academically motivated students find opportunity-rich experiences and the personal attention ordinarily found at much smaller institutions. About 43% of our students study abroad, approximately 64% participating in internships or co-ops, and nearly half conduct funded research with nationally recognized faculty.

Living in the Community

Students, faculty, and staff together build a caring learning and living environment on and off campus, and are leaders in supporting their communities locally and abroad.

Most students live on campus or in Oxford, a true college town with 8,000 permanent residents. First-year students build strong bonds through Living Learning Communities in their residence halls, by joining any of our 475 or more student organizations, and through service opportunities on and off campus. Miami students are encouraged to develop character, explore leadership, embrace diversity, and enhance wellness. The Miami experience provides a rich mixture of culture and diversity through a student population representing 94 countries and a broad array of cultural activities, sports, and entertainment.
