IH Miami Student House

TH MIAMI Student House in South Beach

South Beach is the southernmost tip of Miami Beach. This is the most popular area of the island and offers many attractions including the best part of the beach to its visitors. You will find most of the action in Miami Beach, it is also where most of the famous pictures of the island come from.

In this part of Miami, housing is varied and a huge range of short term accommodation options are available all year round.

To accommodate our students we offer our well known Student House option, as well as homestay options, in Miami Beach. Student Houses in Miami Beach consist of apartments owned and operated by OHC English Miami Beach and rented to our students on short or long term basis. 


All houses are located within 5 to 20 minutes walking distance from the school campus. Because of our proximity to the beach and the size of the island, this means all houses are also no more than about 10 minutes to absolutely everything you could imagine, from shops to night-clubs and, of course, the beach!

House Style

We offer two main styles of homes. Private Suites and Shared Apartments.

• Private Suites

Private suites have a full kitchen bathroom and one or two single beds. These apartments can accommodate a maximum of two people. Students occupying our Private Suites in doubles must know each other, travel together and be taking the course at the same time.

• Shared Apartments

For students looking for a more economical option, we also offer 2 or 3 bedroom apartments. These are larger apartments that offer multiple bedrooms that may be shared by multiple students. There is always one kitchen and and one bathroom and they are shared by everyone living in the same apartment (maximum of 4 people in any apartment). 



Because the choices are so varied and we have to offer a large number of Student Homes, it is not possible for us to always guarantee that all homes will offer all the same amenities. Some homes will have cable TV and/or internet and some won't. Some apartments have a swimming pool and some don't. Because of the very high demand for apartments, we are not able to guarantee any of these extras. However, all apartments will have:

• Full kitchen with basic cooking and food preparation equipment

• One full bathroom with shower and/or bathtub

• Clean and comfortable bedding and all necessary sleeping material 

• Air conditioning in all rooms

• Fridge, stove and a cook top

• Fully furnished for a comfortable and functional home

• Cleaned regularly and maintained by our staff



A new set of sheets, a pillow, and a blanket is provided for every student upon their arrival at the Student House. Students are then expected to wash and maintain their sheets and pillows. Extra sheets, pillows and blankets can be provided at an extra charge.
