Centennial Village

The University of Miami’s Centennial Village, the second phase of a 10-year plan to modernize campus housing, will serve as a hallmark of the Coral Gables campus and support the University’s efforts to competitively recruit top academic and athletic talent.

This second phase begins with the complete replacement of Stanford Residential College followed by Hecht Residential College. Finally, the interior of Eaton Residential College will be completely renovated. Construction will be split into stages, with work projected to take place from 2020-2025.

Centennial Village will continue the successful First-Year Experience program with live-in faculty as well as professional and student staff who support and enhance the freshman experience. In addition to double rooms and an increased offering of single rooms for a combined total of an estimated 2,100 students (inclusive of Eaton Residential College), the new residential colleges will feature private bathrooms, kitchenettes located in shared resident lounges as well as classrooms and learning hubs.

Additionally, Centennial Village will be positioned to take advantage of the many outdoor and programmatic elements of the Coral Gables campus surrounding Lake Osceola.
