10. Will I have a roommate(s)?

We recommended requesting a roommate. Applicants without requests will be assigned roommates based on age and gender. FIT does not assign males and females in the same room.

11. Am I allowed to have an overnight visitor/guest during the summer and is there a fee?

Yes and yes. Summer overnight visitation is limited to eight nights per 30 days, not to exceed two consecutive nights.  Residents are charged $10.00 for each overnight guest. An overnight guest is anyone visiting between Midnight and 8:00 am; they must be pre-registered and paid for.

All other overnight visitation rules and regulations apply; see resident handbook.

12. How do I pre-register and pre-pay for my overnight visitors?

All overnight visitors must be pre-registered and paid prior to arrival. Without pre-registration your guests will not be allowed in the halls. Further instructions will be posted here by May. Please click here to register guests.

  • Visiting Interns can pre-pay by signing on the Non-Student Payment System.  Please click here to submit payment. 
  • Residents will need their Visiting Intern user name and password.  Resident’s user name is the email address listed on the Visiting Intern application and the password is their date of birth listed as the two digit month, date and year.  For example:  022789
  • Please note:  Pre-paying for guests DOES NOT guarantee approval.  Residents must also register guests before 6PM on their day of arrival (see “How to Pre-register Overnight Guest” above)
  • Requests will be denied if payment is not submitted by 6PM on the date of the guest’s arrival
For more information, please reference the Summer 2014 Visitation Policy Guide.
