Take a Virtual Tour

You'll love living in South Florida, the international gateway to the Americas. Our North Miami campus is located along Florida’s South Coast and equidistant from the tropical paradises of Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

Get to Know Miami

Miami and its suburbs are located on a broad plain between the Florida Everglades to the west and Biscayne Bay to the east. The city's historic neighborhoods include Coral Gables, the Design District, Little Haiti and Wynwood, to name a few.

Industry Hotspot

Miami is a major center and a leader in finance, commerce, culture, media, entertainment, the arts, international trade and tourism. Miami is known as the “Cruise Capital of the World” — more passengers go through the city’s port than any other US port.

Live Life Outdoors

South Florida has a tropical climate, the only major metropolitan area in the 48 contiguous states that falls under that category. Along Miami's 35-mile stretch of beachfront, you'll find easily accessible beaches for swimming and people watching, all with the pristine white sand and clear turquoise water the area is famous for.

Pro Sports Mecca

From basketball (Miami Heat) to football (Miami Dolphins) to baseball (Florida Marlins) and ice hockey (Florida Panthers), Miami is a pro-sports hub. Spectator sports are hot, too — from major golf and tennis tournaments to car, horse and boat racing.
