Financial Aid

You can use financial aid to partially or fully pay for housing. FIU Housing calculates eligibility for full or partial deferrals of housing charges based on the financial aid and scholarship information on your myFIU account. It is important for you to notify us of any additional funds or scholarships that are not included in your myFIU account as deferrals will be based on those available funds. 

Financial aid and/or your Florida Prepaid Dormitory Plan can be applied to your housing expenses. If you do not have sufficient financial aid to cover your tuition, fees, and housing rent, a housing payment plan is required to cover your rent. Learn how aid is calculated for more information. 

If you will not be attending FIU, please notify us as soon as possible. Please contact the FIU Housing Finance Office at 305-348-4190 or email us at
