As our name states, we are an international university. The City of Miami is rich in tradition, diversity, and international cultures, as is Miami International University of Art and Design.
Our students hail from all 50 states and over 60 countries. Our student body represents a tremendous blend of nationalities, religious affiliations, and cultural identities. They are invited to not only share their unique culture with others, but also experience the other cultures that surround them.
The surrounding area offers more than its fair share of ways to enjoy time with friends. The Miami climate allows residents to enjoy outdoor sports year-round. Often referred to as the “Magic City,” students can enjoy water sports of all kinds including fishing, boating, diving, and snorkeling. Our students are often found at nearby parks and beaches bike riding, jogging, sunbathing, rollerblading, swimming, or playing tennis and volleyball. Health clubs, gyms, and dance studios in the area offer opportunities for exercise, weight-lifting, ballet, kickboxing, and martial arts.
Miami International University of Art and Design’s neighbors include The Miami Herald, American Airlines Arena, and the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County. Students can take in a Miami Heat, Dolphins, or Florida Marlins game; a jai-alai match, experience the beautiful blue waters of the Keys, or visit the Miami Art Museum or any of the dozens of galleries nearby. Miami’s multicultural environment is also evident in the international cuisine served at a variety of restaurants throughout the city and on the beachside.
