ISSS cannot make housing arrangements for you. Please make such arrangements before your arrival.
If you would like to live on campus, space is limited so submit your Housing Agreement and required fee as soon as possible. See Housing & Residential Life for complete information.
- The Housing Agreement is a legally binding document and once signed, you may not be able to cancel or break it.
Check-In (when you arrive) usually occurs only the weekend prior to the beginning of classes. See below for information on arranging Short-Term Housing.
For information about off-campus housing, please check:
Many websites to search for rentals in the local community exist. FIU is not responsible in any way for the accuracy or availability of information on such sites and ISSS is not recommending or endorsing any of these companies but merely giving examples of the type of information that is available online. Please use caution when giving out personal information or payment to avoid internet scams, identity theft, and fraud.
When searching by zip code, keep in mind that zip codes for areas near the Modesto Maidique Campus include 33172 and 33174; zip codes for areas near the Biscayne Bay Campus include 33181 and 33160.
Short-Term Housing: If you arrive before your On Campus Check In time or have not secured housing before your arrival, you may need to stay in a hotel. Average hotel rates per night run from $105 – $160 and they may not be in easy walking distance to campus.
It is a good idea to make reservations before you arrive. Please see the listing of hotels near each campus.
