UniversityCity is the name that has been given to the partnership between FIU and the City of Sweetwater. There are many projects, facility constructions and events that will be taking place over the course of the next few years to bring this all into reality.

“The creation of student housing, the proposed pedestrian bridge across Eighth Street and the various internship opportunities offered by the City are a few of the components of this strengthening relationship,” said Daniel Irigoyen, Student Government Association Housing Senator. “In a sense, this is a mutualistic relationship where the FIU and Sweetwater communities enrich each other and add value to living, studying and working in the area.”
