Summer Housing

Miami offers Summer Session housing for students who are taking classes on the Oxford campus on a space-available basis. Housing is available at various rates based upon the length of the summer term that you request to live with us. For Summer 2021, students will be housed in Scott Hall and Hepburn Hall.

Please be advised that summer workshop housing is different than Summer Session housing. If you are part of a summer workshop with housing provided, your group contact will help coordinate your housing.

Online Sign-Up

We will begin accepting summer school housing applications and contracts online in late April 2021. In order to sign-up and register for Summer School housing, you will need to access Miami's Online Housing System.

After logging on using your Miami UniqueID and password, click the link for Summer Housing. From there, you will be able to complete the housing contract. You must sign-up and finalize your contract at least 5 business days prior to your move-in date. After we have received your finalized contract, we will review your account to confirm that you are registered for summer school during the dates you have requested. 

After we have confirmed your details and summer registration status, we will process your assignment and email you with the details of your room assignment.

The default room assignment will be a double occupancy room with a roommate. Specific requests regarding roommates will be granted as space permits. Students who would like to request to be roommates must contact our office to submit a request. When requesting a room, you can also request a single. A limited number of single occupancy rooms will be available and are on a first-come basis.

If at any point during the summer your declining balance gets low, funds can be added online by following the instructions on the One Stop payment website
