Regional Locations

Miami’s regional locations include the campuses in Hamilton and Middletown, and the Voice of America Learning Center located near the interstate in West Chester.

Miami began teaching in Hamilton and Middletown in the fall of 1946, extending courses to those communities to serve veterans returning from World War II and pursuing their degrees through the GI Bill® of Rights. Over the years Miami developed five academic centers in the region – Hamilton, Middletown, Norwood, Piqua, and Dayton.

The steady growth of the student population, combined with strong local support for higher education and the communities’ desire to have full-service campuses, led to the opening of Middletown in 1966, followed by Hamilton in 1968. Miami’s work in the Dayton and Piqua areas was done in conjunction with Ohio State (which provided graduate programs) and led to the creation of Wright State University in 1967.

The Voice of America Learning Center, built on the site of a former VOA relay station in West Chester, opened in January 2009 for both undergraduate and graduate instruction.
