Our currently open residence sits snuggly near FIU’s  Modesto A. Maidique Campus. In excitement for the new Winter semester, we’d like to offer some tips and resources for students, both new and current, so you’ll have a smooth transition from the holiday break into the new semester!

Navigating Around FIU

To start, we’d like to direct everyone to a map of the campus. FIU’s Modesto A. Maidique Campus is located at 11200 Southwest 8th Street, Miami, FL 33199 and encompasses 344 acres in University Park. Below you’ll see its official map and if you’d like to access the map at any time in your mobile device, FIU has a mobile site (https://m.fiu.edu/) where you can find the map, as well as any other useful resources.

 Buying Textbooks

Dollars in the books, isolated on white background, business tra

We also know college textbooks are notorious for their cost and it definitely doesn’t hurt to look for the best prices. Below is a list of the current best sites to find textbooks easily.

1. Half.com

2. Amazon.com

3. Chegg.com (rentals)

4. Buy.com

If you still can’t find your textbooks in the given sites, it’s always a good idea to give the textbook ISBN numbers a good search. There may be independent book stores or listings that have your book available. Also, if you’re renting books, which is one of the best ways to save on book costs, be sure to remember to turn them back in on time and/or find locations near you that are approved for rental drop-offs for each of your rentals.

Keeping Track of the Semester

Lastly, be sure to check your school’s Academic calendar for important events and holidays!  It’s always a great idea to register for your classes as soon as possible and having a calendar handy is the best way to stay on track. You can find FIU’s calendar at the following web address: http://onestop.fiu.edu/academic-calendar/

We wish this new year’s students the best of luck!
