All current/returning FIT students must apply for housing each academic year.

Priority is given to earliest housing applicants.

  All other applications will be placed on a wait list and awarded housing based on availability. Learn more about the wait list.

To apply:

** To access the housing application, you must first be accepted to the college and your tuition deposit received and processed by the Bursar's Office. This process can take up to three business days. Remember that FIT business offices are closed on weekends and holidays.**

  • Log in to MyFIT.
  • Click on the Student tab --> scroll down to Housing/Residential Life --> choose Fall/Spring Application --> choose Apply Online --> select Current/Returning FIT FALL application. (An instructional video is coming soon.)
  • A non-refundable $300 credit card deposit is required at the time of application.
  • FAQ about the housing application can be found here.

You will be notified via email whether you are confirmed for on-campus housing or if you are on the wait list. 


Applicants with Confirmed Housing

You will enter a room/roommate selection process.

The room/roommate selection process auto assigns the earliest applicants a date and time to choose their room type and roommates.

Keep in mind, if you are seeking off campus living accommodations, the neighborhoods surrounding FIT (including the boroughs) are considered some  of fastest growing, trendiest areas in New York City. Many of our students live in off-campus residences and continue to enjoy a well-rounded college experience.
