Sept. 27, 2022 | FGCU is canceling all classes and non-essential campus activities
Thursday and Friday. FGCU leaders will evaluate methods for students to make up for
lost instructional time, which will likely include the use of planned study dates
as regular academic class. Please expect updates to the academic calendar once we
return to normal operations. For storm updates, visit fgcu.edu/emergencymanagement.
Explore state-of-the-art residence halls, dining options, student organizations, health
services, campus recreation and other activities. Our service-learning program and
