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. Visit our Accepted Students page to learn more about housing assignments for incoming students.

 

Rising Third & Fourth Year Students (Current Second Year and Older Students)

Room Selection for 2021-22 for current Second Year and Older students will begin in late Fall 2021. Eligible students will receive informational emails later this semester.  

Each year, many upperclass students choose to live on campus. Why should you? 

  • Convenience: With so many on-campus options, you'll be close to classrooms, dining, and other campus activities.
  • Flexibility: Not sure if you are going to study abroad or not? Unsure about an internship that's outside of Oxford? When you live on campus you don't have to worry about a lease. We'll release you from the housing contract for the semester if you are away from Oxford!
  • One Bill: Everything is charged to your university account, and utilities are included.
  • Tuition Guarantee: Miami's Tuition Guarantee applies to housing and meal plan rates, so your costs are more predictable.
  • Stay Connected: Living on campus is a great way to stay connected to campus activities, programs, and more.

Rising Second Year Students (Current First Year Students)

Room selection for rising second year students takes place during the Spring semester of your first year. General dates are listed below. You can also check out more details about these processes by clicking more details at any time! More specific details and exact dates will be finalized before the start of Spring semester.

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.
