People come from all over the world to experience Miami's beaches, culture, food and festivals. At FIU, you'll take classes and make friends with students from all over the world in the spectacularly lush settings of our Modesto A. Maidique and Biscayne Bay campuses. You'll do it while being 30 minutes from South Beach and the Atlantic Ocean, the Everglades National Park and downtown. Plus, you're only a three-hour flight from New York City and a short flight to both Central and South America.
More than 1,000 multinational companies call Miami home, and it is consistently recognized as the “Best City for Doing Business in Latin America” by América Economía. Miami is the hub of the hospitality industry and hosts the four-day, star-studded Food Network and Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by FOOD & WINE, which our students help plan and execute.
"I love the housing accommodations here at FIU! The rooms are spacious, I have a kitchen in my room I can cook in and I get along great with my roommates! One of them is from Maryland and the other is from Texas. It has been great to meet people from across the United States in addition to my Global First Year friends! My roommates and I cook together and do things on the weekends."
