Travel and Accommodations
MIA Mover and Metrorail
Public transit allows one to travel to the Miller School of Medicine, from the Miami International Airport (MIA) via the Metrorail system, Miami’s elevated rail transit system. To do so you will take a short ride on the MIA Mover (an automated light rail people mover) to the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC). From the MIC it is a short ride on the orange line to the Civic Center metro stop, which is easy walking distance (100 yards) to the Rosenstiel Medical Science Building (Room 2023). The Metrorail system also allows one to travel to center of Miami, and to south Miami.
The Miami Intermodal Center (MIC)
The Miami Intermodal Center (MIC) is a short distance from the Miami International Airport. It houses a Rental Car Center, the terminus for Florida’s Tri-rail system, and also the MIA Metrorail stop.
Many of our students do not live in Miami, and only periodically join us for class. This means they must find short-term accommodations for their time here in Miami. Miami is a beautiful city and a tourist destination, but there are reasonable options for your stay. Students are responsible for booking their own accommodations, but we can certainly make recommendations. The following are walking distance to the Miami metro:
- SpringHill Suites by Marriott, Miami Airport East/Medical Center, 1311 NW 10th Avenue, Miami, FL 33136-2100, (305) 575-5300, This hotel is next to the medical center, and just a 5 minute walk to the RMSB building.
- The Sheraton Miami Airport Hotel (Price range: $96 – $264) is conveniently located near the Miami Intermodal Center and a short metro ride to the Miller School of Medicine.
- Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton Miami Brickell Downtown (Price range: $155 – $310) – This hotel is located in downtown Miami, one block from the Brickell metro station.
If you are planning on staying in Miami a little longer (who wouldn’t want to?) then you will need longer term accommodations. If this is the case, consider UM’s Off Campus Housing.
