Barry’s campus is well maintained, and the scenery is very tropical—all around campus, you will see palm trees, flowers, and vegetation. The building exteriors are stone, and the many windows give each building a warm, comfortable feeling. This is definitely not a school that feels like a prison. Barry updates its campus facilities on a regular basis—it seems like the school is renovating or improving some part of the campus every week, whether it’s work on the buildings, planting bundles of flowers, or cutting and maintaining the grass.

The campus library, Monsignor William Barry Memorial Library, includes more than 950,000 items, 1,300 journals, and more than 700 journals in electronic full text. So, no matter what you are looking for, the Barry library will have it. The University also offers several dining facilities, a gymnasium, a great fitness center with all the best equipment, and many study areas for students. Barry even has private piano rooms where students can practice piano whenever they desire.

Favorite Things To Do
Since Barry is in Miami, students like to go to the beach, hit the club scene, go to house parties, or shop at their favorite mall. On campus, students just hang with one another or attend a play or performance the school is offering. The Campus Activities Board (CAB) also sponsors events for students. Recently, CAB offered tickets and transportation to a Miami Heat basketball game.
