Check out our move-in video!

You will be moving into a room furnished with:

  • a bed (standard twin size mattress)
  • desk and chair
  • chest

Suites also include a dining table with chairs, bathroom and a kitchen. NO ADDITIONAL FURNITURE IS ALLOWED.

Internet access is available in every dorm room. For instructions on how to connect to the FIT Network, please visit it.fitnyc.edu/fit-internet. Not all devices will be able to connect to the FIT Network, please view the IT Department's list of supported devices for more information.

DO NOT BRING TOO MUCH STUFF. Remember living space in NYC is very limited and the residence halls are no exception. Your room already has the essentials and there is no storage space for belongings. Seasonal clothing can be shipped back and forth from home.
