    Students have roommates and floormates who share similar academic interests. Trained residential staff live on the designated Summer Scholars floors with the participants to promote safety and wellbeing, and to create welcoming learning communities. Rooms are assigned by gender with male and female students on separate floors. We are an inclusive community.

    All residential areas are equipped with University Wi-Fi and all bedrooms are equipped with a port for wired connectivity.

  • Commuting to Campus

    The Commuter Program is for students who will live at home with parents or relatives in Miami-Dade or Broward County. 

    Summer Scholars is designed for the enjoyment of all students. As part of the program, commuters attend classes, eat lunch on campus, and take part in program activities. Commuters who appreciate their experience most participate in evening and weekend activities. Activities give students time to bond with a diverse group of individuals outside of class and form long-lasting friendships. The individual student experience will be shaped by activity choices and level of engagement on campus.
