UM and Surroundings


Campus Culture

The University of Miami has become a mecca of cultural and social activities - from the Lowe Art Museum and the Cosford Cinema to the Gusman Concert Hall at the Phillip and Patricia Frost School of Music and Jerry Herman Ring Theatre. UM has theatres, museums, galleries, an arboretum, and a convocation and basketball arena, that are among the best in South Florida.
