Living Off Campus 

Graduate students and upperclass students usually live off campus in Oxford. Deciding where to live off-campus is a very important decision.
Check the Off-Campus housing finder or other relevant websites to search for housing in Oxford. The Tenant Education Program is an online workshop offered through Canvas about lease signing and off-campus living to provide Miami students with the tools to be good neighbors, responsible community members, and better tenants. Students will earn a certificate once they have successfully completed the program, as well as access to various incentives from participating landlord partners.
