Florida International University
Florida International University is Miami’s public research university and is focused on student success and research excellence, with nearly $200 million in annual research expenditures. The Next Horizon campaign is furthering FIU’s commitment to providing students Worlds Ahead opportunities. Today FIU has two campuses and multiple centers including sites in Qingdao and Tianjin, China and supports artistic and cultural engagement through its three museums: Patricia &
Phillip Frost Art Museum, the Wolfsonian - FIU, and the Jewish Museum of Florida - FIU. FIU is a member of Conference USA with more than 400 student-athletes participating in 18 sports. The university has awarded more than 330,000 degrees to many leaders in South Florida and beyond.
From the top of the globe to the ocean's floor FIU researchers are exploring the toughest challenges of our time: sea level rise, childhood mental health disorders and more. This solutions-center approach is why FIU is designated a Carnegie Very High Research institution, the only public university in South Florida to achieve this distinction.
A Campus as Diverse as its Students
Get lost in the 342-acre city block that is Modesto A. Maidique Campus. Sit on the sandy shores of Biscayne Bay Campus. Or explore any one of our 4 satellite locations across South Florida. With a student body of 54,000, we make sure there’s something for everyone here.
Life at FIU is More Than Just Going to Class
Walk to the Graham center and join a club, or go outside and take a seat with the yoga class on the lawn. Join a fraternity or sorority and go Greek, or if you have the voice, apply at our radio station: the Roar. Here at FIU, we encourage you to get out there and become a member of the FIU family.
We're not just talkers, we're doers. Getting involved is about more than getting to know your 54,000 fellow students. As Panthers, we work together to make a difference and we're always improving. Find your people and start growing in any of our 300+ clubs and organizations.
Whether you’re looking for a great workout, an outdoor experience or the rush of competing, FIU’s recreation options inspire a fit and healthy lifestyle. From ropes courses to group classes to weights, there's something for everyone.
