Thanks for stopping by Life@TheU, our resource-packed website dedicated to anyone and everyone who works at the University of Miami.

Life@TheU is all about one U

We get it. Life and work at the University of Miami looks very different depending on where you’re standing (or sitting). From offices to research labs and classrooms, operating rooms to shark infested waters, there’s no telling what each day has in store. In fact, the University does so much, in so many different locations, that it can be hard to digest it all.

Despite our different roles, locations, and tenures, employees at the U are working together at each of our three campuses and numerous satellite locations to make a positive impact on the world around us. There’s no way to know exactly what will happen next. But when it happens, Life@TheU is here to keep you in the know.
