Miami University’s Oxford campus is growing with the construction of two new academic buildings — the first since the Farmer School of Business was built in 2009 — and an indoor equestrian center. The renovation of the College@Elm building in partnership with the city of Oxford will revitalize an area along College Avenue and Elm Street uptown.

Indoor Equestrian Center (B)
The Indoor Equestrian Center is nearly complete and it is scheduled to open later this summer. The 125-by-250 square foot riding surface within the arena will allow for year-round educational and outreach programming for the university community and year-round training for the club equestrian team and academic classes. The indoor arena, which broke ground in November 2020, is funded by donor gifts to the equestrian facility fund.
