UM in DC: Campus Life & Housing

Mentored Field Practicum

As a student in the UM in DC Program, you will share a room in the residence hall with two other Miami students on American University’s main campus. American University is located in Northwest D.C. and the campus is just a few blocks (an easy shuttle ride or walk) away from the Metro and easy access to downtown!

You will have access to AU’s facilities and student services, including the fitness centers, inter-library loan consortium (providing you access to books at all of the universities in the DC area), academic support services, and access to AU’s numerous weekly events and speakers who visit the campus. You can also become involved on campus by joining a student activity or club sport. AU has more than 200 student-led organizations.
