Campus Visit Notes for Miami University-Oxford


Visit Description:

I could write so much about my Miami experiences, but the best way to learn about Miami is o experience the school for yourself! No regrets!

Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:

There are a few hotels in the area. The Elms, a Best Western I believe, and there is a special Miami hotel but that might be exclusively for Miami Alumnae and parents visiting for the weekend.

Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:

There are SO many food options on and around campus a list would not be useful! All is good!

Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):

There is at least one parking garage on campus. Parking is free for visits. There is transportation around campus however for visits unless the weather is severe, I highly recommend walking.
