ROOM/ROOMMATE SELECTION PROCESS
The room/roommate selection process auto assigns the earliest applicants a date and time to choose a room type and roommate(s). You will NOT be able to choose a wait listed applicant as a roommate.
|SELECT YOUR ROOMMATE(S)
May 14 - June 20
|Log in to MyFIT --> MyHousing --> Roommate Selection.
Enter your choice of roommate(s). You must have their name and FIT email address. You will NOT be able to choose a wait listed applicant as a roommate. If you have a specific roommate in mind and you’re unable to find them in the roommate matching system, it is likely because you each chose different answers for the Gender Inclusive Housing option. You both must either opt-in or opt-out of Gender Inclusive Housing. Please see FAQs below for instructions on how to change your answer.
Don't have a roommate? Check out the Advanced Roommate Search on MyHousing.

I WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE MY ANSWER FOR OPTING IN/OUT OF GENDER INCLUSIVE HOUSING. CAN I DO THAT?
Yes, you may update your Gender Inclusive preference as many times as needed until Tues, June 12th at 12pm noon. After this deadline, you will NOT be able to opt in/out of Gender Inclusive housing. No exceptions!
Both you and your roommate preferences must opt-in or opt-out. You will not be able to choose each other in roommate selection if you have answered differently to this question.
To check/change opting in or out of Gender Inclusive Housing:
- Log in to MyHousing.
- Select “Fall 2018 and Spring 2019” term from the drop down menu.
- On question 4, you may choose to opt in/out of Gender Inclusive Housing; remember: you and your roommate must answer the same.
IS THERE AN ADVANTAGE TO SELECTING ROOMMATE(S)
Yes. Selecting roommate(s) increases the chances of choosing your preferred accommodation. It is to your advantage to have the roommate with the earliest selection date/time choose a room type. Once a room type is selected, all mutually selected roommates will automatically be assigned.
I DON’T HAVE A ROOMMATE REQUEST. IS THERE A WAY TO SEARCH FOR ONE?
Yes. Students eligible for Room Selection can use Advanced Roommate Search to find other students seeking roommates. Use of this feature is strongly encouraged as there is an advantage to selecting roommate(s). If you do not choose a roommate, one will randomly be assigned.
CAN I CHOOSE THE ROOM/FLOOR I WANT TO LIVE ON?
Though the system will show you a room number and floor when you select your room, you are only selecting a ROOM TYPE (i.e. double, triple, quad, etc.) and not a specific room. Final assignments are determined by the college and will not be released until after July 20. Check MyHousing for most updated information. Room assignments may change prior to check-in. FIT reserves the right to change or consolidate assignments.
WHAT IF THE SYSTEM SHOWS THERE ARE NO ROOM TYPES TO SELECT?
The system will only show available room types that match your number of roommate request(s); therefore, you and your roommate(s) must go back to Roommate Selection and deselect each other as there are still individual spaces available. Remember: you may not be able to choose your preferred room type with your roommate request(s); therefore, it advisable to have another room type preference as a back-up.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON’T LOG-IN AND CHOOSE A ROOM TYPE?
You will be assigned and billed based upon availability. Once assigned/billed, you are financially obligated to the college for these charges regardless of preferred accommodation. It is strongly advised that you log-in and select a room type during your assigned selection date/time.
