The Dolibois European Center is housed in a 15th century castle situated in a beautiful park at the center of Differdange, Luxembourg's third-largest city. The Center, which celebrated its 45th anniversary in 2013, maintains an excellent reputation and strong ties to the local community.
Luxembourgers have a genuine affection for Americans and have special ties with Miami. Many citizens remember with gratitude the American forces who liberated their country during World War I and II, and think fondly of their own John Dolibois, for whom the European Center is named. Dolibois was born in Luxembourg, came to Miami as a student in 1938, and returned to his homeland as a U.S. ambassador during the 1980s.
Being the oldest American program in Luxembourg, the Center enjoys the support of a wide range of local and international experts and officials.

Because the Center is considered Miami's "fourth campus", all courses taken are Miami courses (grades and credits apply like those earned in Ohio). Non-Miami students may transfer credits to their home institution.
Other than the required language course, all classes are taught in English.
Miami students may complete a Miami Plan Thematic Sequence in one semester and/or fulfill the many Miami Plan requirements, including Global Perspectives. Some major/minor courses may be available as well.Students can complete courses towards the European Area Studies Minor.
