Students accepted to Alumni, Coed or Nagler Halls:
FIT’s location, in the middle of NYC’s busy fashion district, creates some unique challenges when it comes to move-in day. We ask that you read our move-in information carefully as your adherence to these instructions will facilitate the easiest and least stressful move-in experience possible.
All new residents will move in on Sunday, August 19th. Each resident will be assigned a specific arrival time to check-in that day. Residents will not be permitted access to 27th street if they arrive outside of their arrival time. Please plan ahead and account for weather or traffic delays to arrive at your scheduled time.
NO CHECK-INs PRIOR TO AUGUST 19th. No exceptions!
Sunday, AUGUST 19, 2018
Please make note of the following information carefully:
- During your assigned move-in time, student staff will help you unload your car into these bins and assist you with moving the bins up to your room. Please make sure to bring only what may fit into two of these bins as any additional items must be brought at a later date.
- One person must stay in the car at all times while move-in crews load the bins. The driver should not exit the vehicle and it should be moved off the block immediately after unloaded.
- There is no parking on 27th street. Cars will be given access to unload only. Parked cars will be towed. We will provide you with local parking options to use once your car has been unloaded.
- You will check-in with the RA on your floor, who will provide check-in materials including your key and ID.
- Please follow this map to join the street entry queue by your scheduled check-in time. This map also includes local parking garages.
There will be limited check-in hours between 6:00pm and 11:00pm. Students will still be able to check-in at this time but there will be limited college personnel available. There will be no move-in assistance and limited carts available at this time.
Students arriving between 11:00 PM and 9:00 AM will NOT have access to the residence halls.
