The place for innovation, learning, and pushing the boundaries of knowledge.

In partnership with Magic Leap, the University of Miami has created a space where ideas come to life. In the XR Garage, students partner with faculty to develop VR/AR/MR/XR applications for purposes of supporting curricula, research, and health.

The XR Garage program is supported by a full-time team of student programmers and an experienced staff director from the software development industry. The students and staff are paid by the University's IT department and offered as a shared service to all UM Schools.

  • The School of Nursing and Allied Health Studies
  • The School of Kinesiology and Sport Sciences
