Your FIU One Card is your Library Card!
You will need your FIU One Card to enter the Green Library. 

FIU One Card = Library Card
The 14-digit number on the back of your FIU One Card is your Library Card Number. To get an FIU One Card, go to the campus ID Office - see FIU One Card for more information.

You will need a Library Number for:

The default password for your library account is the 2-digit month and 2-digit day of your birth. For example, if you were born on May 10th, your password would be 0510.

FIU Library Card numbers are automatically activated as part of the registration process (for students) and hiring process (for employees).  Due to heavy workloads at the beginning of each semester, some delay in the record activation may occur.  If this occurs, and you need to use the library resources, please contact Access Services by calling 305-348-2451 or 305-919-5718 Additionally, you can stop by the Checkout Desk at either campus.


  • New and transfer students -- Your library card will be valid from the first day of classes.
  • Continuing students -- Your library card will be re-activated for each semester in conjunction with registering for class or dissertation research.  Otherwise, your card is not valid.
  • Adjunct Faculty -- Your library card is valid for the semester during which you are contracted to teach.  Please contact your department if your library card fails to be re-activated; they will need to notify the Payroll Department of your continued employment.
  • Alumni and Retired Faculty -- Please retain your FIU One Card - it continues to serve as your library card.
