Safety comes first

FIU Housing is the safe choice for students moving out of the house for the first time. Security is enforced by not only by 24-7 front desk service and campus police, but also the office of Residence Life, where we work to create a supportive and safe environment for students to learn and live. Keeping students happy and healthy is our top priority.

Campus Police

FIUPD works diligently to prevent and investigate criminal activity, provide for a safe flow of vehicle and pedestrian traffic, and find solutions to the issues that affect our students, our faculty, and our staff
