Win $50: Take the Orientation Experience Survey
We hope that you had a positive orientation experience and that you have become more Confident, Comfortable, Connected, and Curious about your time at Miami. As we plan for you to be on campus soon, and as we plan for the future, we would appreciate your feedback via the summer orientation survey. If you already took the survey using the link in Canvas, you do not need to do so again. Survey participants will be entered to win one of two $50 gift cards to the Miami University Campus Stores. The survey is available through July 24 and it takes less than 10 minutes, so submit your feedback today!

Your Miami Student ID

When you get to campus in the fall you will receive your student ID. If you are living in a residence hall, you will receive your student ID at your residence hall when you check in (as long as you have submitted your picture). Commuter students may pick up their IDs at the Campus Services Center during business hours beginning on August 1. If you haven't yet submitted your ID photo, please be sure to do that as soon as possible, and no later than August 1. Otherwise, you'll need to go to the Campus Services Center to have your photo taken and your ID printed.
Your Student ID is used for:
  • Residence hall building/room key (for campus residents)
  • Access to the Commuter Center (for commuter students)
  • Meal Plan
  • MUlaa debit account
  • Rec center pass
  • Library card
  • BCRTA bus pass
  • Campus event attendance
  • Varsity sport admission 
There are also apps available that use your student ID: 
  • Mobile ID: This app allows you to use your smartphone to access your residence hall room, just in case you don't have your student ID with you.
  • GET Miami: This app allows you to order food ahead of time as specific dining locations on campus. You can also check your meal plan balance, see menus and hours of operation and see your recent transactions

Since You Asked

Since You Asked...

Each week, the Hawk Herald features a question asked by a member of the Class of 2024. Halle Campbell, a Miami senior, will share her perspective with you.
Q: Should I bring a bike to campus?
A: In my experience, I don't use a bike, but lots of students do. There are bike lanes throughout Oxford. Personally, I find that it's very easy to walk across campus to my classes and I have plenty of time between clasess to walk or take the bus to my next class. When I have student events in farther buildings I typically take the bus. Butler County Regional Transit Authority (BCRTA) offers public transportation on campus and throughout Oxford. Your student ID acts as your bus pass and buses can take you all over campus. Visit Miami's Parking and Transportation webpage to see bus routes. Getting around campus is all about personal preference!
