The University of Miami offers undergraduate on-campus housing in five residential colleges as well as the University Village apartments, which are comprised of five different apartment models housed in seven buildings. The Village is limited to only full-time juniors and seniors with 60+ academic credits. First Year Experience (FYE) is a collaborative effort to give first-year students the resources and support they need to make a smooth transition into the campus community. The Hecht and Stanford Residential Colleges along with three partial floors of Eaton Residential College currently house all first-year students. Transfer and exchange students live in Eaton, Mahoney, and Pearson Residential Colleges, where residents with upper-class standing are assigned suite-style rooms.
