As there’s a high demand for on-campus housing, we utilize a lottery to allow for fair and equitable distribution of housing spaces. Although housing is not guaranteed, the lottery allows us to disseminate approx. 1,000 spaces for current/returning students in the fairest way possible. Please review the information below to familiarize yourself with the process.


  • All current and/or returning FIT students who wish to live in FIT housing must re-apply each year.  
  • Housing for current and/or returning students is available in Kaufman Hall (406 w 31st Street) only.
  • Housing contracts are binding for the 2018-2019 academic year. Exceptions include:
    ○   December Graduates.
    ○   One semester exchange students.
    ○   College-approved Study Abroad programs.
  • Students must maintain 12 or more credits each semester to be eligible.
  • Housing Applications will be accepted beginning 1pm February 27, 2018 until 1pm March 1, 2018.
