An Invitation to Invest in FIU Libraries

A gift to FIU Libraries is a gift to the whole university. We serve students and faculty in every major across all campuses.

At FIU, where 93% of students commute, the Library is the home base for students to collaborate, study, research and relax.

Your gift of any amount will make a difference for a student who considers the Library his or her “home away from home.”
