ROOM/ROOMMATE SELECTION PROCESS


SELECT YOUR ROOMMATE(S)
March 15 – May 31, 2017
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

SELECT YOUR ROOM TYPE
Email Notification:  May 25, 2017
Selection dates: May 30 & May 31, 2017

You will receive an email with your selection date and time.

Though you will be able to view available accommodations beginning Thursday 5/25, you will not be able to choose an accommodation until your assigned selection date/time.  Remember: you are only selecting a room type, not an actual room.

It is recommended that you select a room type at the earliest assigned date and time. Residential Life will randomly assign a space and roommate(s) to anyone who does not select a room type by Wednesday, 6/1 at 9am.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT TYPES OF ACCOMMODATIONS ARE AVAILABLE?
Current/returning students are only able to choose accommodations (quad, triple, double or single apartments) at Kaufman Hall*.

New/entering students are not allowed to choose current/returning students as roommates and vice versa.

*FIT reserves the right to change assignments as necessary.

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 21. Room assignments may change prior to check-in. FIT reserves the right to change or consolidate assignments.  Continue to check your MyHousing for the latest updates to your assignment.

MY "STUDENT" TAB HAS Disappeared FROM MYFIT.  HOW CAN I ACCESS MYHOUSING SELF-SERVICE TO CHOOSE A ROOM?

If your “Student” tab is missing upon logging into MyFIT, it is likely because you were a student employee at the college during the academic year. You may still access MyHousing Self-Service for room selection by logging into MyFIT, clicking on "Employee" tab --> click "Online Information System" --> then click "Residential Life". This should then take you to MyHousing Self-Service. 

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.

WHEN AM I BILLED FOR HOUSING?

Though housing contracts are binding for one full academic year, confirmed applicants will be billed for one semester at a time.  Housing charges for fall will be posted to student's FIT account after room selection in June; spring charges will be posted to their account in November.
