Your New Beach Home
The palm trees, the ocean breeze. Making yourself at home in Coral Gables, FL won’t be a problem when attending The U. The school recommends students living on campus to bring with them a variety of items from carpet rugs to utensils to a coffee pot so they can be fully prepared to begin the transition from living at home with their parents to living on their own in college. To better assist students, the school enforces the First Year Experience (FYE) where all new students are housed in communities to better help them adjust to their academics and their new surroundings.
Housing For Students
There are five residential colleges on campus. Each is catered towards a specific community, each differs in rates, and there are single and double room occupancy offered. Each dorm hall houses a different amount of students as well.
