Housing & Student Life


Students choosing to live or study with ELS on campus, take advantage of wireless Internet, flexible dining plans, the many rec areas, plus residence options - from simple on-campus suites to traditional off-campus apartments. Through ELS, homestay options with American families are also available. 

As an ELS student on the Barry campus, you don't have to live on campus to take advantage of the pool, tennis courts, and Landon Fitness Center, but if you do live on campus, you can take advantage of the residences' Battle of the Halls, Earth Day, and Casino Night, and those are not to be missed if you want a real taste of American University culture. 

Student Life

First and foremost, this is Miami! A city known for its perfect blend of cultures, character, warm weather, entertainment, business innovation, and hemispheric influence. You'll be immersed in it all - both on campus, and in the wider community.

As a student at Barry, when you're not cheering on our championship-winning Buccaneers, you'll have a chance to be involved in 60+ student organizations.

But above all, a commitment to making the world a better place will form the heart of your Barry University learning experience. Barry focuses on communal transformation and collaborative services.

So don't be surprised if you find yourself joining in on service projects for Habitat for Humanity or Best Buddies. Or restoring an endangered mangrove beach or reef. Learning the art of organic urban farming. Helping a local homeless shelter serve its hungry, or even helping a distant community rebuild after natural disaster strikes.
