About the Area

Florida Atlantic University is a public institution serving a six-county region in Southeast Florida. Campuses are located in Davie, Dania Beach, downtown Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Jupiter, Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce. The University's original campus opened in 1964 on a former U.S. Army airfield in Boca Raton that had been a top-secret radar training facility during World War Two. FAU's service area stretches more than 100 miles along Florida's beautiful southeast coastline, offering students the opportunity to enjoy a true semi-tropical lifestyle while pursuing their degrees.
Public beaches and parks are plentiful, and entertainment venues abound, ranging from theatres, art galleries and museums to arenas and stadiums. FAU itself is a center of year-round cultural activity, offering many events that are open to the public, including lectures, concerts, plays and exhibitions. In addition to ts 28,000 regularly enrolled students, FAU serves more than 19,000 men and women of retirement age through the Lifelong Learning Society, the largest and most successful program of its kind in the United States.
