Returning Students

Students accepted to Kaufman Hall:

Residents Scheduled to Check-In MUST Arrive at 406 West 31st Street (between 9th and 10th Aves). If you are arriving by car when moving-in please approach from 10th Ave, turn right onto W. 34th street and then another right down 9th Ave before turning onto 31st street. 

With over 2,000 students living on campus, move-in becomes a challenge.  FIT’s residence halls are located in the heart of New York City and Kaufman Hall is a main thoroughfare to the Lincoln tunnel. The Department of Transportation limits street closings in NYC; therefore, we rely on your compliance with the following schedule:

NO CHECK-INs PRIOR TO AUGUST 25th. No exceptions!
Arrivals prior to August 25th will be directed to local hotels

Saturday, AUGUST 25, 2018


Sunday, AUGUST 26, 2018


More information about assigned times to come soon!




There will be limited check-in hours between 4:00pm and 11:00pm. Students will still be able to check-in at this time but there will be limited college personnel available. Please follow posted signs after 4pm.

Students arriving between 11:00 PM and 9:00 AM will NOT have access to the residence halls.


Students can start viewing their initial room and roommate assignments starting July 20 on their MyHousing.  This will be an initial assignment and may change prior to check-in.  For the most updated information check your FIT email and MyHousing.
