  • The Second Avenue Studio at 220 SE 2ndAvenue is the new site for the School of Architecture’s MetroLAB. In addition to functioning as an academic space it will remain an exhibition space and site for community engagement programs.

In addition, the main office of the Associate Provost for the Broward Campuses is in the Liberal Arts (LA) building at Davie, Suite 212. The telephone number is x61280. The downtown satellite campus administration office is located in HE 1007.

Three units with community outreach missions remain in Fort Lauderdale at the Higher Education Complex: the Small Business Development Center in HE 1009 H; the Florida Public Archaeology Network HE 1008 D; and Upward Bound in HE 1008 P.

The Askew Tower and Higher Education buildings at Fort Lauderdale are now managed by Broward College. All requests for use of meeting or event space at both FAU Fort Lauderdale and Broward College should be directed to Jane Morgan, x61282; or Charlotte Walker, x61280.

FAU parking is still available in Fort Lauderdale in the ground lot adjacent to the Higher Education Complex or on the rooftop of the City Park parking garage.
