ABOUT

A private research university with more than 16,000 students from around the world, the University of Miami is a vibrant and diverse academic community focused on teaching and learning and the discovery of new knowledge.

The University comprises 11 schools and colleges serving undergraduate and graduate students in more than 180 majors and programs. UMiami is a major research university engaged in $309 million in research and sponsored program expenditures a year.

The main campus is located in the city of Coral Gables, in Miami-Dade County. The world-famous climate and numerous other attractions make South Florida a unique place to experience, whether it’s the beaches of South Beach, cultural venues such as Lowe Art Museum on campus or the Perez Art Museum Miami on the shores of Biscayne Bay, or visiting the shops and restaurants along Coral Gables’ Miracle Mile or nearby CocoWalk in Coconut Grove. Enthusiasts of sports, arts and the subtropical environment will all find something intriguing in close proximity to the campus.
