We asked our residents to tell us why they love living on campus.
Here are 8 reasons, in no particular order:

“…spending $80 on gas for the whole semester.” Whether you’re coming from another country or you live down the street, everyone can relate to the high cost of gas and transportation. Make sure to factor in the money you’ll save living on campus when comparing expenses between on-campus and off-campus living.

“Rolling out of bed and walking to class was pretty cool.” “…super convenient, fun and got to meet my great roommates.” We’ve combined a couple of comments here, but you get the drift. Convenience and fun are a huge part of living on campus.

“Working on projects together, playing board games ‘til very late…” Work hard. Play hard. At the end of a long day, it’s great to have some fun with your friends. A convenience store on the property is open until 2 a.m. and makes killer chocolate chip cookies (just sayin’).

“The resort-like setting of the campus…” Our campuses are drop dead gorgeous. The Modesto A. Maidique Campus, where Lakeview Hall is located, has one of the largest sculpture parks of any university in the country, and the tropical climate means the campus is a lush jungle year ‘round.

“I learned to do laundry.” It’s not glamorous, but, hey, you have to learn to take care of yourself sometime. Why not do it with your peers?

“Library access at all crazy hours.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Residents really take advantage of the long hours when it’s time for midterms or final exams.

“You really become part of a community.” Whether it’s meeting at the library to study, heading to an on-campus sporting event (you can choose from football, baseball, soccer, softball and volleyball) or just chill-laxin’ at Starbucks, you’ll be part of a tight-knit community.

“It’s the full college experience.” This is a big one. You can keep your head down and focus solely on your classes – keep calm and carry on and all that – and we’re sure you’ll graduate and experience success. We’re not knocking it. But life on campus is about making connections and living an experience you’ll never have again for the rest of your life. Seize the moment!

“Lived, worked, played and studied with lots of international students.” Miami is an incredibly diverse city, attracting people from around the globe. So is FIU. If you want to be a citizen of the world, start by living on campus at FIU.

Residents of Lakeview Hall will have unlimited access to The Fresh Food Company, our new completely renovated state-of-the-art dining hall.

Living & Learning Communities at Lakeview

Living Learning Communities offer the instant benefit of living with others who share your interests or major. The communities are designed with you in mind – they’re a great way for you to make friends and can help you excel academically.

First Year Residents Succeeding Together (FYRST)

FYRST helps students acclimate to FIU in a fun and supportive environment. Participants can also take the required Freshmen Experience class right in the residence hall and have easy access to student and faculty mentors. Community service opportunities and a variety of programs and workshops enable students to meet one another, get involved in the university community, and gain important skills in and out of the classroom.

Architecture + The Arts Community

Students from the College of Architecture + The Arts are encouraged to live in the Architecture and Arts Community in Lakeview Hall South, where FIU faculty and Residential Life staff work together to provide students with special programming, events and the convenience of living in close proximity with other students who share the same major and interests. Students benefit from living and studying with their peers and faculty and being more involved in their college.
