Panther Mover

Reminder Finger

Reminder

Don't forget to pick up your parking decal, either online or by heading to the Parking and Transportation office in PG5. You may now also pay/appeal student tickets online.

Lighbulb Recommendation

Recommendation

We recommend you try to arrive on campus an hour before class. This will give you time to find a parking space and beat traffic (which gets backed up on all 8th street entrances).

The Panther Shuttle

FIU has several campuses and centers around South Florida. We offer shuttle services to a couple of them.

Golden Panther Express Shuttle (GPE)

Bus Stop Driver

Shuttle service that commutes between MMC and Biscayne Bay Campus (BBC) in North Miami.

The bus stop at MMC is located next to Lot 3 and Gold Garage.

Bus Fare: The GPE has a $2.50 (one-way trip) bus fare. You can pay this bus fare by loading up your FIU OneCard at the FIU OneCard office in Gold Garage (Open from 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.).

Alternate FIU OneCard Reload Stations:

  • Engineering Center
    • Panther Pit – 2nd floor
  • Pines Center
    • Computer Lab – 1st floor

Lightbulb Recommendation

Recommendations

Print out your semester’s schedule and visit the campus with a friend (or family member) and walk through your class schedule before the semester begins. Make sure you know what building you’re supposed to go to, and where exactly your class is located. Believe us, this relieves the stress and anxiety of trying to find your class on the first day.

Options

Did you know you can rent your textbook for the semester? Or did you know we sell used textbooks? Get familiar with all of your textbook-buying options.

Buying New

Purchasing the most recent, newest edition of the class textbook.

Buying Used

Purchasing a used, less-expensive edition of the class textbook. Because of demand, used textbooks sell out early, so make sure you buy your books as early as the week before class.

Rent Textbooks

Rent your textbook for the semester, if available. The period lasts from the day you rent the textbook until the day after finals week. You can rent the book online, which will come with a pre-paid return shipping label. Or you can rent directly from the bookstore.

Note: you will need a credit card on the bookstore file in case anything goes wrong with the book.

If you have any more questions on renting textbooks, check out the FAQ

Buy eBook

If available, you can purchase an eBook (a digital version of the required textbook). Depending on the class, you may actually be required to buy the eBook because of supplemental digital-only material.

Book Advance

A book advance is simply an advance of your financial aid that once you accept the funds it goes on your FIU OneCard and you may use it to purchase books and supplies from the FIU Bookstore.

Recommendations

Try to buy your textbooks the week before class starts. Remember that trip to campus we mentioned earlier where you walk through your schedule and get familiar with the buildings? Perfect time to purchase your textbooks!

Offices

We really hope you don’t come across any school-related hiccups the first week of class. But in case you do, here are the major offices you’ll most likely visit to solve your problems.
