Coral Gables Campus
The Coral Gables campus, the University’s main campus, is home to two colleges and seven schools and is located on a 239-acre tract in Coral Gables, approximately seven miles from downtown Miami. These academic units include the School of Architecture, College of Arts and Science, School of Business Administration, School of Communication, School of Education and Human Development, College of Engineering, School of Law, Phillip and Patricia School of Music, and School of Nursing and Health Studies. The Division of Continuing and International Education is housed on the campus.
The campus is one of South Florida’s prime destinations for a rich variety of arts and culture offerings. The Lowe Art Museum houses South Florida’s largest and most varied art collection and hosts traveling exhibitions. The Jerry Herman Ring Theatre brings vitality to the South Florida cultural community. The acoustically superb Gusman Concert Hall and Clarke Recital Hall are the sites of hundreds of concerts, including Festival Miami, spanning the musical spectrum that are presented by the Frost School of Music. The Cosford Cinema screens a wide variety of first-run, classic, rare, and art-house films. The Coral Gables campus is also home to the University’s celebrated intercollegiate athletics program.
Since the millennium, many major new facilities have been added to the Coral Gables campus—BankUnited Center, Weeks Music Library and Technology Center, Flipse Building, Epstein and Kosar Faculty Building at the School of Business Administration, Wolfson Building and International Buidling at the School of Communication, Perez Architecture Center, Schwartz Center for Nursing and Health Studies, Palley Pavillion for Contemporary Glass and Studio Arts at the Lowe Art Museum, University Village (the first housing project, which includes 800 student beds, in more than 35 years), Newman Alumni Center, and the Student Activities Center. In 2016 the Lennar Foundation Medical Center, a 200,000-square-foot ambulatory medical facility, will open on the campus.
