Coral Gables is a really nice area. Pretty diverse, but kind of expensive to live near campus (it's a ritzy area). Very close to Downtown Miami and South Beach (maybe 15-20 mins). Since the campus is right off of US1, traffic can be terrible around rush hour but I personally love the area.They have a good public transportation system called the Metrorail, which is an above ground train that goes from Hialeah to Dadeland. Coral Gables is suburban but not too far from a major city, which is great. Lots of stores and good restaurants nearby, also a serious plus.
Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any more questions
