FIDM has a plethora of great resources that students often don't utilize because they may not know that all of them even exist. In terms of technology, Studio East and West are great resources, with more than 100 computers and laptops, equipped with necessary student programs, color printers, and scanners, which are free for students. Digital Productions (first level) is also helpful, as an area for graphics and digital media students to add effects and edit their work. With studying and research, the FIDM Library (third floor) includes three resource rooms: a media room, a textile room, and an interior design room. There are also "Vogue" periodicals and current trend predictives within the 35,000-plus holdings of the FIDM Library. For career advisement, the Career Center (second floor) helps students write their resumes, build portfolios, and find jobs and internships. Alumni can also use the Career Center as a resource. On the fourth floor is Student Advisement and Counseling, where students can go to get answers to general questions, scheduling advice, and financial planning.
Aside from resources that help students with their studies, there are also assets involving student entertainment. The Museum Gallery (first level facing Grand Hope Park) is where FIDM puts on exhibits that are free and open to the public. If students want to buy some designer threads or funky accessories, they can shop at the Scholarship Store (first level facing Grand Avenue), which features very low-priced apparel, shoes, and accessories, along with slightly damaged goods that usually need small repairs (easy for FIDM students). The Annette Green Perfume Museum (second floor) is one of two in the world. Open to the public, the museum is great for students to see how things were packaged and advertised by huge designers like Chanel, Dior, and Givenchy.
