After being closed for years, Bell Tower is set to reopen this year, located in the center of campus, making it a convenient dining hall.

Bell Tower Commons reopens, now with robots

“I’m really excited to live so close to something that’s been such a popular topic of conversation all the time I’ve been at Miami,” Williams said. “It’s like a fairy tale or something. Everyone’s always like, ‘Bell Tower — that was magical.’”
