Welcome to Florida Atlantic University (FAU). The history of FAU is made up of students just like you, off-campus students. From its opening in 1961 through 1984 FAU was a Junior and Senior college. Many students transferred to FAU, lived off campus and commuted. Today with over 30,000 students, the majority of our students live off campus.
What does this mean for you? It means everything that happens on campus is for all students, not just on-campus students. I encourage you to come to campus for your courses, but stay for everything else that happens. As you navigate through the commuter and the FAU web pages look for those activities and events you want to become involved in.
